Copenhagen Container terminal to be relocated
Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) says the container terminal at Port of Copenhagen needs to be relocated as part of the urban development of Copenhagen and the further development of Nordhavn (Northern Harbour). CMP, which operates the container terminal in Nordhavn, will therefore investigate new options for the future location of the container terminal. “The current masterplan from 2009 for the development of the Nordhavn port area in Copenhagen notes that the present location of the container terminal in Nordhavn is not a long-term alternative,” said CMP. “Consequently, an investigation was initiated during the spring of 2015 to assess the options regarding a potential relocation of the terminal. “The development plans for Nordhavn allow for a relocation of the container terminal to Ydre Nordhavn (the Outer Northern Harbour). Simultaneously, the Port of Køge has approached CMP in the same matter. http://www.hellenicshippingnews.com/copenhagen-container-terminal-to-be-relocated-options-being-examined/Upload News
