Construction of Visby's new cruise quay under way

In February, Region Gotland, CMP and building contractor Aarsleff invited to the groundbreaking ceremony for the cruise quay in Visby.

The quay will be completed in spring 2018. On site at the ceremony were, among others, the Regional Executive Chairman Björn Jansson together with Johan Röstin, CEO of Copenhagen Malmö Port. Gotland County Governor Cecilia Schelin Seidegård also participated along with representatives from the tourism and hospitality industry and of course the media.

With the new cruise quay more ships will be visiting Visby. Therefore, Region Gotland and CMP will be able to help develop cruise tourism in the Baltic Sea in general and on Gotland in particular.

Two 340 metre long ships will be able to dock simultaneously at the cruise quay when it is completed. Including abutments, it will extend a total of 530 metres out into the sea. It will be possible to dock at Visby with an average wind of up to 14 metres per second. A terminal for passengers and crew of about 300 square metres is planned on the abutment.
