Aarsleff on verge of port pact
Construction expected to begin in 2016
Aarsleff has announced that it is close to signing a contract for phase 1 of the enlargement of the Port of Frederikshavn.
The contract, where Aarsleff would establish a 600 metre new quay designed to accommodate high loads, a 30 hectare hinterland area and extend and deepen the fairway to a depth of 12 metres, is expected to have a total value of DKK 500-600m.
The invitation to tender was based on functional requirements, and Aarsleff tendered on carrying out the enlargement as a turnkey contract with the subsidiary VG Entreprenør and Rohde Nielsen as subcontractors and Grontmij as consulting engineer.
The Port of Frederikshavn plans to enlarge and improve its current harbour facilities and develop growing business areas such as the offshore industry, the wind turbine industry and the recycling industry with environmentally friendly decommissioning of ships and oil rigs.
The geotechnical site investigations, authority processing and design will begin in August 2015, with construction expected to begin in 2016. The project is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2018.
