The Stockholm Norvik Port, scheduled to open in 2020, has reached the halfway stage in its construction process.

Buildings, quays and bridges over the future railway are emerging simultaneously as the features of the new port start to take shape, while supporting casement walls are being moved into place on the sea bed using floating structures.

Around 350 people are currently working on-site as the Stockholm Norvik Port gets ready to welcome the first vessel in 2020.

“The Stockholm Norvik Port is long-awaited. Volumes of both RoRo and container traffic are increasing and vessels are becoming ever larger,” Johan Castwall, Ports of Stockholm Managing Director, said.
