The Port of Gothenburg in Sweden will have one of the existing quays at its Energy Port undergo a complete rebuild before the end of the decade.

Local construction company Peab has been selected for the works, which will entail geotechnical improvements, new foundations, and demolition and reconstruction of the 300-metre quay.

During the construction of the new quay, ships will still be able to call and ongoing operations will continue, albeit to a more limited extent.

Erik Hallgren, Vice President Infrastructure at the Gothenburg Port Authority, said the project is in line with the port’s long-term goal of becoming Scandinavia’s largest hub for renewable energy.

The feasibility study and preliminary planning will begin in the fourth quarter of 2023. Construction works are scheduled to commence in Q1 2026 and continue until Q1 2031.
