New green container in Copenhagen Malmö Port

22 October 2021

Copenhagen Malmö Port and By & Havn have reached an agreement on a new container terminal at Ydre Nordhavn. The construction of the new terminal takes account of the environment and environmental approvals have been granted for the project. Thanks to its location close to Copenhagen, delivery of goods will be possible with minimal emissions and congestion on Danish roads. In addition, the construction of the Nordhavn tunnel under Svanemølle Bay is ongoing and will allow direct access from the container terminal to the motorways around the capital. This should be possible as from 2027.

The new terminal will be bigger than the existing terminal at Levantkaj, with around 165.000m2, compared to 140.000m2 currently. In addition, two new container cranes will be installed. In total, the length of the quay will be of 550m, and water depth will go down to 12,5m.
