The port to double in size The expansion of the port, which began in 1998, will be staggered over approximatly 25 years. When the expansion is complete, the port area will be increased to double its present size and will cover 360 hectares. The annual cargo-handling capacity will increase to approximately 20 million tonnes. The projected maximum water depth will be 15.5 metres alongside the quays as compared to 13.5 metres earlier. The cost of the building of the new harbour is estimated to exceed two billion Danish kroner. On the rights side of the white line is the port's long term extension plan. The red is marking the new port area finished in 2001. Three Post-Panamax gantry container cranes are available - each with a lifting capacity of 90 tonnes. First stage of the port's extension plan - a new container terminal East - is build as an extension of the present Eastern harbour. The new terminal was taken into use in April 2001 by APM Terminals. The new quay has water depths of 14 metres allowing the world's largest container vessels to call. New activities Possibilities for expansion exist at the Easter Harbour.
