The ramps weigh 115 tons each and are 28 x 12 meters in size. The ramps were sailed out on the pontoon from ferry berth 5 to ferry berths 13 and 14, one at a time.
The work with ferry berths no.13 and no.14 will be completed before the turn of the year 2020/2021.
Ferry berth 13 will be 250 m long and ferry berth 14 will be 500 m long and it will also be used as a commercial quay. The port basin will be 9 meters deep and a total of approximately 650,000 cubic meters will be dredged up. All dredged material will be used to fill in land in the new port area. The recycling means a substantial environmental benefit for the Baltic Sea’s climate-smartest port.
The construction of ferry berth no.13 and no.14 is one of the activities in the EU project “Long-term achievements – ready for a sustainable core port in Trelleborg – LARS – 2017-SE-TM-0061-W” which is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union. The project extends between 2017-2021.
