Sweden Inaugurates Expanded Port of Kapellskäras

One of Sweden’s most important freight ports, Kapellskär now features a new pier, larger logistics area and modernised port facilities.

“The Port of Kapellskär is extremely important for trade along the East-West axis and for sustainable transport in the rapidly growing Stockholm region,” Stefan Hansson, Chair of the Board at Port of Stockholm, said.

The reconstructed port consists of 200,000 square metres of logistics area, an entirely new pier with two quay-berths, a newly renovated pier with two quay-berths and a reconstructed quay-berth. Following the reconstruction work the Port of Kapellskär now has five modern quay-berths. There is also a new pilot harbour adjacent to the south end of the port.

“Both the traffic through the port and the vessel service traffic has expanded enormously at the Port of Kapellskär and there has been a great demand to expand capacity. Now we have modern facilities that can efficiently handle vessels, cargo and passengers,” Peter Lundman, Technical Operations Manager at the Port of Kapellskär, said.

The Port of Kapellskär is part of the Ports of Stockholm Group, which has ports in Stockholm, Nynäshamn and Kapellskär.
