The Swedish construction and civil engineering company has been commissioned to build the new ferry berths nos. 11 and 12, including ramps, as well as a side ramp for the existing berth no. 10.
The construction is scheduled for completion by end-2021/start-2022. The new berthing places will be able to accommodate ferries up to 240 m-long, while the no. 10's side ramp is specifically put in place for TT-Line's newbuild, the 230 m-long and 31 m-wide Green Ship, set to start operating in 2022.
"The relocation of the ferry berths to the southeast means significant environmental benefits, as the ferry traffic moves further away from the central of Trelleborg. The move to the new berths is also made with the aim of shortening the time and increase the safety of manoeuvring the vessels within the port area and also improves the logistics in the port," the Port of Trelleborg wrote in a press release.
Peab will strive to minimize the environmental footprint of the construction works, i.a., by using its ECO-Betong and ECO-Asfalt solutions (the latter is said to cause 63% less CO2 emissions than standard asphalt), running a large portion of its transportation vehicles on hydro-treated vegetable oil diesel, and transporting steel by ship and train mainly.
