The exisiting container terminal can handle ships with a length of 190 m and a loading capacity of 1500 containers. During the project, the container terminal will be extended with 360 m new berth, adapted for much larger container ships. The new container terminal will be able to receive ships up to 366 meters in length, with a capacity of 14,000 containers.
1300 piles will be used with a total length of 26 km (which corresponds to the stretch distance between Gävle and Sandviken). About 11,000 m3 of concrete will be used which corresponds to 1,500 trucks with concrete.
The project will be completed in a period of approximately 12 months.
Själva produktionen är beräknad att påbörjas 12 december med uppehåll mellan 21 december-3 januari.
The actual production is scheduled to start on the 12th of December, with a break between 21st of December to 3rd of January.
The piling work is the part of the project that can affect the environment due to noise. To gather information about the possible impact on the surroundings, Port of Gävle has conducted an investigation to ensure that the noise does not exceed the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's limits. The investigation shows that the noise created due to the expansion of the container terminal, does not exceed the limits.
