Container terminal extension has been in progress for 12 months. Check out the video: https://youtu.be/ueA_DOouWdE .
The last quay elements were sunk by the end of January 2017. The huge crane used in moving the elements was soon taken apart and shipped elsewhere.
Let's celebrate. Construction site has been busy for over 5 months now. As a result, all of the 71 quay base elements are now ready.
The final stretch. Almost all 36 base elements for the new container quay are ready.

Rock is transported from the northern part of the Port of Rauma to the expanding container terminal.
At the moment, 13 of the new container quay base elements are finished. The total amount will be 36.
These 15 meter bold constructions are made of concrete. They will create the base for the new container quay.
Container traffic continues as usual despite of the construction work of the expanded container quay & terminal.
Rock blasting at the northern part of the port has started. Several trucks are transporting the rock to the new container quay which will be filled with 500 000 tonnes of rock.
