Peab has been commissioned to build a dock in the Port of Orrskär in Söderhamn Municipality to enable handling more goods. The customer is Söderhamn Municipality and the contract is worth SEK 170 million.
The Port of Orrskär is one of Sweden’s largest reloading ports for sawn timber. Peab will build a 100 meter long dock and fill out an area in the sea to create a new foundation for a terminal. The project entails several different operations in the sea area.
“This is a technically advanced marine project where we can use our entire pallet of expertise while contributing to a vital function for society. I’m really pleased that Peab won this project and can soon begin work on the new port,” says Jörgen Eriksson, Region Manager Peab.
“Söderhamn Municipality and Söderhamns Stuveri och Hamn AB, our port operator, are extremely pleased to finally see the project get started. It’s been a long and challenging process to go through the permit and procurement procedures during a period with a pandemic and rising prices. We’re really happy to have signed on Peab and look forward to working well together,” says Henrik Olsson, Port & Archipelago Manager for Söderhamn Municipality.
The project is a turnkey contract. Construction will start in the autumn/winter of 2023 and is expected to be completed in 2026.
The project will be order registered in the third quarter 2023.
