LINDØ port of ODENSE A/S and a consortium of Jan de Nul from Belgium and ZÜBLIN A/S from Denmark have signed a contract for a port extension at Lindø, Denmark, involving a 400,000 square metre industrial area and one kilometre of new quay. These facilities will provide the much-needed space to extend the port activities for bulk goods and maritime and offshore industries.
The consortium, named JV LINDØ port of ODENSE, won the DKK 350 million tender, an extensive project to create new land, one kilometre of quay and a special heavy-load area on quayside, as a unique feature on the new Terminal North at Lindø. This heavy-load area will be 30 metres wide from the quay inland and 100 metres long along the quayside. The massive construction will be especially suited for very large mobile and crawler cranes, and all known commercially available cranes of this type will be able to operate at maximum capacity on this area. This means that, even for very heavy cranes and objects, only basic crane mats will be needed, and customers will not need to invest in extensive temporary sand beds to spread the load during each project. The new heavy-load area will make it possible to service projects at Lindø using the existing 1200-tonne gantry crane at Terminal South and, from 2020, mobile and crawler cranes for projects at Terminal North.
Booming investments in Danish ports
The contractors ZÜBLIN and Jan de Nul, who will perform the project together, are excited about the cooperation with LINDØ port of ODENSE. Chairman of the Board at ZÜBLIN A/S, Jens-Henrik Nicolaisen: “The cooperation with LINDØ port of ODENSE is an obvious continuation of the strong cooperation we already have with Odense Municipality as part of the From Street to City project. We are happy to be able to extend this relationship to include Kerteminde Municipality and LINDØ port of ODENSE.”
Investments in Danish ports are booming and ZÜBLIN and Jan de Nul have great expectations for the possibilities in this market. This is partly why this extension at Lindø is especially interesting for the two companies.
Thomas Bentsen, Technical Director for Business Unit Ground & Civil engineering at ZÜBLIN A/S explains: “The extension of LINDØ port of ODENSE is a complex project which brings forward our competences within ground and civil engineering. Together with Jan de Nul’s competences in dredging and land reclamation, we have established a strong team with international expertise and local knowledge of the Danish market. In addition to our joint competences, ZÜBLIN and Jan de Nul also own the massive machinery that enables us to solve the job.”
At LINDØ port of ODENSE A/S, the satisfaction with the cooperation and project signed today is clear: “We started the project of expanding the port at Lindø almost nine years ago, and today we take a giant leap towards its finalisation by closing the full extension with one large contract,” explains Carsten Aa, CEO of LINDØ port of ODENSE A/S. He adds: “We are looking forward to the cooperation with Jan de Nul and ZÜBLIN, who we already know very well. With full confidence in both quality and timeframe, we can now – together with our customers – move forward in planning the projects for 2020 and onwards.”
