Expansion works including blasting starts from september 8

The expansion of the port of Norrköping is ongoing, and will continue during the autumn of 2020 with a greater concentration on the land side with the expansion of the quay, and new storage areas in the Pampusterminal, located on Händelö, Norrköping.

During week 37, starting on Tuesday, September 8, groundworks will begin for the upcoming storage area, which includes blasting in the western part of the port.
Rock masses from these blasts will then be reused in future quay construction. Blasting will be carried out continuously two to three times daily Monday-Friday between 06.00-18.00 during the autumn of 2020 and the start of 2021. The blastings will be heard and felt in the vicinity of the port, but can also be heard at a longer distance from the port, depending on wind and wheater conditions. A warning signal will sound before blasting, the signal will be more intense closer to blasting, after blasting a longer sustained signal will be heard.

All work is carried out in accordance with current permits and taking into account set limit values, safety distance to people, buildings and goods. Our hope and absolute starting point is that any disruptions from future work will be as small as possible.
