Gothenburg Port Authority launches Bunkering app
Last week, the Gothenburg Port Authority launched a digital solution designed to make bunkering at the Energy Port easier and more efficient. The new ‘Bunkering App’ is one of the first in the world to offer this range of functionality. The Port of Gothenburg Energy Port is the largest open access energy port in the Nordic region, handling over 2,500 calls and more than 23 million tonnes of energy products each year. The Energy Port is also one of the world’s larger bunkering hubs. In an effort to make the bunkering procedures easier and more efficient, the Gothenburg Port Authority has developed the new ‘Bunkering App’.
Port of Gothenburg starts construction of new terminal
After years of planning and preparation, construction of an entirely new terminal in the outer area of the Port of Gothenburg has started, the company said in its press release. The project will be the largest expansion undertaking at the Port of Gothenburg in 40 years. Phase 1 started with piling earlier in the week. The 220,000 square metre terminal will be constructed using dredge spoils contained by an embankment, and is scheduled for completion around 2025.
Swedish government presents plan and budget for deepening of the fairways at the Port of Gothenburg
On June 2, the Swedish Minister for Infrastructure Thomas Eneroth presented key elements of the government’s strategic infrastructure plan and budget related to the deepening of the fairways at the Port of Gothenburg. The decision means that the government will cover almost one-third of the cost of the project, which can now proceed to the next phase. Deeper fairways will allow the very largest vessels, both now and in the future, to call at the Port of Gothenburg fully loaded, opening up potential for more direct services and increased freight volumes between Gothenburg and the world.Upload News
