Peab builds new container port in Sundsvall
Peab has been commissioned to build a new container port adjacent to Tunadal Port in Sundsvall. The customer is SCA Logistics AB and the contract is worth SEK 249 million.
In order to meet the growing demand for paper pulp and sawn wood products a new container port will be built in Sundsvall. It will be the equivalent of four football fields and have the capacity to handle around 100,000 standard containers annually. A new dock will also be built which entails massive groundwork and tonguing. To ensure that ships deeper than those currently entering the port can traffic the shipping lane the harbor basin will be dredged. The project also includes extensive electrical, water and water waste work.
“We look forward to further developing yet another part of Sundsvall Logistics Park by building the new container port together with SCA. We have a lot of great experience working together on big, complex projects like the nearby extensions of Östrand Paper Mill and the Tunadal Saw Mill. It’s a given for us as the Nordic Community Builder to be part of developing the infrastructure and an efficient and sustainable transportation hub for Sundsvall and Norrland,” says Jörgen Eriksson, Region Manager Peab.
The new container port will be adjacent to the new Sundsvall Logistics Park in Tunadal Port. The logistics park will be a transportation hub where roads, the railroad and shipping come together to provide business with access to efficient and sustainable transportation to and from Sundsvall.
The project is a turnkey contract in partnering. Construction is planned to begin after the summer and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2023.
The project will be order registered in the second quarter 2021.
