Port of Roenne chooses MT Højgaard Denmark as contractor for major futureproofing of the port
MT Højgaard Denmark has been chosen to be responsible for the next two stages in futureproofing the Port of Roenne, which will strengthen all the port's business areas and maintain a unique and central position in the Baltic Sea.
The Port of Roenne has chosen the contractor MT Højgaard Denmark to be responsible for the next two stages of future-proofing the port, so that it can live up to its obligations as Bornholm's primary commercial and supply port as well as the Baltic Sea's centre for green energy.
The work is expected to be completed in 2025.
- With the next port expansions, we are strengthening all our business areas and at the same time supporting the functional division of the port's activities. The navigation and manoeuvring conditions in the port are improved, we meet the demands of our customers, and we futureproof the function as the entire island's supply port. In this way, we strengthen being a prerequisite for growth and development on Bornholm, while at the same time contributing to fulfilling the political ambitions of the green transition by strengthening our position as the Baltic Sea's centre for green energy, says Lars Nordahl Lemvigh, CEO of Port of Roenne A/S.
Stage 3 of the future-proofing is about creating more than 100,000 m2 of larger project area in the south end of the port, among other things by partially filling the former fishing basin, where there is minimal activity today. In addition, a new Ro-Ro ramp and a new approx. 280 m long quay will be established opposite the current in the south end of the port.
Stage 4 of the future-proofing is an extension of the southern outer fault, and a removal of the inner piers and deepening. This results in improved navigation and manoeuvring conditions in the harbour with a much calmer harbour base. Finally, the port will establish a multipurpose quay in the western part of the port. The multipurpose quay creates improved opportunities for several business areas (e.g. bulk and cruise), and thus generally better conditions for the port's customers as a whole.
Work on future-proofing Port of Rønne A/S will begin at the end of 2023, when the necessary permits and approvals are in place.
At the end of 2022, MT Højgaard completed the second phase of the harbour expansion, where the southern outer fault was extended at the same time as the quay and project area in the south end of the was expanded. In connection with the extension, the old landfill site at Galløkken was cleared up and utilized, and is now part of the port's project areas.
