SWEDEN : Nordic construction and engineering company Peab has secured a SEK249m ($29.5m) contract from SCA Logistics to build a new container port adjacent to Tunadal Port in Sundsvall, Sweden in order to meet the growing demand for paper pulp and sawn wood products.
According to Peab, the new container port will be the equivalent of four football fields and have the capacity to handle around 100,000 standard containers annually.
A new dock will also be built, and to ensure that ships deeper than those currently entering the port can transit the shipping lane the harbour basin will be dredged.
Construction is planned to begin after the summer and is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2023.
