Kalundborg to enter the cruise market

The Danish port has teamed with Blue Water Shipping and PWL Port Services to jointly operate a cruise terminal.

In February 2019, the Port of Kalundborg will grow with 330,000 m2 of new areas. Out of this figure, approx. 25,000 m2 will be designed for cruise operations, offering a 500 m long and 15 m deep quay.

"We are confident that with this new port area we are offering a unique turnaround opportunity for Baltic cruises and journeys along the Norwegian coast. The location of Kalundborg, eight nautical miles from the T-route in the Great Belt and just 100 km from Copenhagen airport, will make Kalundborg a very competitive alternative in the area with regard to revenue for the cruise lines and time and fuel savings when cruising into the Baltic," Liselotte Roerup, Cruise and Marketing Manager, the Port of Kalundborg, said.

Alexander Napp, Managing Partner at PWL Port Services, added, "When we came across the Port of Kalundborg and its potential once the new deep-water pier is in place, it was only a consequent step to join the team with the port and Blue Water. With the expertise we have in Germany and the location of Kalundborg and its close proximity to Copenhagen we see a huge opportunity for the region."

"The whole region is becoming increasingly popular, and with the huge order book ahead Kalundborg is a great alternative and addition to the existing port structure. Together with the port and PWL, we will be able to offer a modern, full-scale turnaround solution, customised to fit each cruise lines' exact needs," Hans Chen Braas, Manager Port Agency & Cruise, Blue Water Shipping, summed up.
