Port of Odense Makes Agreements for Expansion

Lindø Port of Odense in Denmark has teamed up with two construction companies for an expansion of its facilities.

A maritime engineering and construction consortium of Jan de Nul from Belgium and Züblin from Denmark will extend an industrial area of the port by 400,000 square metres and build one kilometre of new quay.

These facilities will provide more space to extend port activities within bulk goods and maritime and offshore industries.

The new land, quay and a special heavy-load area will all be part of a new Terminal North at Lindø.

Thomas Bentsen, Technical Director for Business Unit Ground & Civil engineering at Züblin explained: “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 competencies 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 owns the massive machinery that enables us to solve the job.”

Carsten Aa, CEO at Lindø Port of Odense, commented: “Almost nine years ago we started the project of expanding the port at Lindø, and today we take a giant leap towards the finalizing by closing the full extension with one large contract.

“We are looking forward to the cooperation with Jan de Nul and Züblin, whom we already know very well.

“And 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.”
