The Copenhagen-Malmo Port (CMP) has named COWI and Ramboll as technical consultants for the construction of its new container terminal and relevant administrative buildings.
In a statement, CMP said it began the tendering process for technical consultancy for future development projects in Ydre Nordhavn, Copenhagen, where it plans to move the existing container terminal at Levantkaj within a few years.
Povl Dolleris Røjkjær Ungar, COO of Copenhagen Malmö Port, said, “The existing container terminal in Copenhagen already has a very high capacity, with its strategic location and associated infrastructure.
“This will be further strengthened by moving the terminal to Ydre Nordhavn, as new and efficient facilities will be established right next to modern infrastructure.
“Highly efficient and competent technical consultants with a lot of experience will be an important success factor in this work.
“We now have this in the form of COWI and Rambøll, and we are very much looking forward to our joint collaboration.”
Brian Foged, Vice President of COWI’s Marine and Foundation Engineering Department, also commented, “Establishing and future-proofing marine and coastal infrastructure is close to our port and coastal engineering team’s heart, and we are very much looking forward to getting started with the work.
“In order to ensure the best possible conditions for CMP and all users of the container terminal, we also have the opportunity to draw on the additional skills of our colleagues in the transport, energy and construction divisions, as well as from Arkitema.
“It is an honour to be part of the development of Ydre Nordhavn and the port environment in Øresund.”
