Finnlines will gain from additional berth capacity at the Port of Naantali

Friday, 29 September 2017

The Port of Naantali has started a construction work to extend an existing quay from 178 metres to 228 metres in order to create additional vessel handling infrastructure.

This will support Finnlines’ plans to expand its traffic between Finland, Åland and Sweden enabling Finnlines larger vessels to enter the port.

The construction work has started in September 2017 and the works are scheduled to be completed by the end of April 2018.

Finnlines can expand its traffic between Finland, Åland and Sweden and ensure more efficient use of the harbour.

According to the Port of Naantali the ongoing port investment programme will amount to approximately EUR 4 million.

The Port of Kapellskär in Sweden has also been expanded and now has five modern quay-berths.

“These investments in Naantali and Kapellskär support our strategy to optimise the use of our vessels and routes. This also enables us to develop our traffic between Finland, Åland and Sweden and the use of all our vessel types and more flexible use of the fleet. These investments will strengthen Finnlines’ services and we can serve our customers even better and meet their growing demand for top quality cargo and passenger services,” says Tom Pippingsköld, CFO, Finnlines Plc.
