Port of Frederikshavn has signed a contract with CG Jensen A/S regarding the establishment of a new quay plant by Østre Kaj. 

The ship quay will be 225 metres long, of which 200 metres will have a water depth of 9.5 metres. Running parallel to the quay, a 160 metre-long dock quay with a water depth of 14 metres will also be established. The two quays will be separated by a 40 metre-wide breakwater.

An online statement from Port of Frederikshavn said: “We are very happy to be able to announce that we have now entered into agreement with CG Jensen A/S on the new quay plant.”

It added that it had been “a long process”, but said, “we now feel that we have reached our goal with a very good project, which supports and meets the customers of the port and especially Orskov Yard.”

Lars Fischer, CEO at Orskov Yard A/S, said: “With this contracting between Port of Frederikshavn and CG Jensen our expansion project has now reached a milestone and we are looking forward to follow the construction up close. The new quay plant opens up for Orskov Yards’ expansion plans, so we can offer our customers larger capacities and flexibility in the future.”

The new quay plant will give Orskov Yard space for its new 180-metre floating dock, which has already been ordered from Hat-San Shipyard in Turkey. With this new dock, Orskov Yard will be able to service more vessels and vessels with larger draught.

Mikkel Seedorff Sørensen, CEO at Port of Frederikshavn, said: “CG Jensen A/S has great expertise within water construction, and we are looking forward to working with them.”

Jørn Asmussen, CEO at CG Jensen A/S, added: “At CG Jensen we have worked a long time with this assignment, and it is great joy to us that Port of Frederikshavn has pointed us out as winners. It is a very heavy task and a great trust, which has been shown us. We shall do our outmost to respond this. Throughout the years, we have carried out many assignments for the port, however this is the largest to date, and we are looking forward to get started. We are ready with the right project and production team, so I am sure it will be good.” 

The project engineering of the quay has already started, and the physical activities are expected to start after the Easter holidays. The plan is that Orskov Yard can start the installation of the new floating dock by January 2021, where there will be a partial delivery of the dock quay. The entire project is expected to be finished by July 2020.
