Frederikshavn Port expects that the major expansion of the port and the port spaces will commence next year. The first phase of the expansion will be completed in 2016 and will cost half a billion Danish kroner, states a press release from the port.
The expansion will contribute to ensuring that the port benefits from the growth potential which is expected: the port will be called at by major ships which demand further water depth and sea room. In the North Sea, there is a growing market for servicing and scrapping of offshore installations which the port expansion will create room for. Finally, a projection of cargo volumes for Frederikshavn Port shows increasing activity, particularly in recovery and biofuel, which the new port expansion and extra port space will support.
