Gävle Municipality Approves SEK 200 million to Expand Yilport Gävle Container Terminal
A unanimous municipal executive board in Gävle has agreed that the municipality will invest SEK 200 million in an expansion and reinforcement of the quay recently built just east of the Gävle Container Terminal.
”We do it to create growth and jobs, Yilport will invest in Cranes," says COB Inger Källgren Sawela, to the newspaper Arbetarbladet.
The plan is to start construction works this fall and the quay will be ready for use in the summer of 2019. The new 320-meter long quay creates the conditions for twice as many containers at the terminal.
"Gävle will become the largest container port in the Baltic Sea," says Inger Källgren Sawela.
