The Danish Port of Kalundborg in the western part of Zealand, Denmark, will increase the feeder- and container traffic and attract new international industry.
The Danish Port of Kalundborg is about to start an expansion of the already existing 800.000 square meters. Next year the port will begin the building of 330,000 extra square meters with 500 metres of dock and 15 metres of water depth. The cost of the project is €26 million. The new port area is called “Ny Vesthavn” and will contribute to strengthen the entire business cluster of Kalundborg.
With global companies such as Statoil, Novo Nordisk and Novozymes, the business cluster surrounding the Port of Kalundborg is the largest and most dynamic industrial area in eastern Denmark outside of Copenhagen.
”It is the highest priority for us to keep strengthening the infrastructure, expand the business space and improve the facilities for existing and new port-using companies in order to support the already viable business environment in the Kalundborg-area,” states Chairman of the Board at the Port of Kalundborg, Jakob Beck Jensen.
Port of Kalundborg will begin the building project in the summer of 2017 and expect the new port area to be fully functional from the fall of 2018.
