The first stone in the building of New West Port in Kalundborg was thrown on Wednesday, October 11, over the railing of Samsø Ferry into Kalundborg Fjord at the site where the brand new port area of Kalundborg will be finished in a couple of years.

Initially, New West Port will count 330,000 m2, which will feature a container terminal and 500-meter quay. The port will have a 15-metre water depth which makes Port of Kalundborg the only on Zealand Island to offer deep water at the quay next to the T-route - the deep water route which connects the Baltic Sea and North Sea.

The facilities will offer favourable conditions for cruise lines and port users, which is why Port of Kalundborg considers the expansion as an investment in the future.

The construction of the port area is divided into 2 contracts, with the one being land-based construction, and the other covering the dredging at sea. Port of Kalundborg chose NCC Industry A/S and Wasa Dredging Ltd.

The Port expects the expansion to be finished in February 2019.
