Hearing Deadline for Waste-Water Treatment Plant

03 October 2018

The City of Aarhus needs a new waste-water treatment plant and currently the city council is discussing three different locations. The deadline for submitting a response to the City of Aarhus is in a week or so – to be exact on October 8 – about the possible three locations of the waste-water treatment plant. In the so-called “main proposal” the waste-water treatment plant will be situated at an area of approx. 12 ha, primarily within that part of the territorial waters which is presently set within clearly defined limits for marina. “Alternative 1” will situate the waste-water treatment plant within the existing areas of the port of Aarhus at an area of approx. 9 ha. As there is a need for 12 ha for the new plant, the possibility of a further extension of 3 ha at or next to the port of Aarhus is being investigated. “Alternative 2” will situate the waste-water treatment plant at the territorial waters outside the enrockment at the eastern port. This alternative might be seen in connection with or as a precursor of a forthcoming expansion of the eastern port (the “Yderhavnen”), the planning of which Port of Aarhus has applied the City of Aarhus to initiate. However, it may be possible to implement this proposal independent of a port extension.


The Future in Silhouette

03 October 2018

In mid-September the Aarhus city council approved an environmental survey of the so-called “Yderhavnen” (the Outer Port), which is a planned extension of the port of Aarhus of 140 ha in the sea to the east and in good distance from the city. The extension accounts for approx. 50 per cent of the existing port area. When Port of Aarhus at first asked permission to carry out an environmental survey of the “Yderhavnen” (the Outer Port), the city council sent the case for further consideration in the Committee for Technology and Environment. But when the case was discussed for the second time in the city council, a majority of the city council members agreed that Port of Aarhus can now carry out an environmental study of the planned port extension. The “Yderhavnen” (the Outer Port), which is planned to be made in three steps until the year 2060, is to be investigated by COWI and this will probably take a couple of years. Only then will the city council have to decide on the extension itself.


Land-based Power at the Port of Aarhus?

03 October 2018

From time to time, people ask Port of Aarhus: “Why don’t you establish a land-based power plant, so the ships can get power from land while in the port?” Technical Manager Anne Zachariassen wants to point out that a fixed land-based power plant with cables in the ground is neither a profitable nor future-proof solution at the port of Aarhus. Such a solution is best suited for fixed calls with high frequency – such as ferries. This conclusion has also been made in several other ports.


Upgrading of Østhavnsvej

16 August 2018

Østhavnsvej is already a main thoroughfare at the port of Aarhus, and it will be in the future too. Every year, the turnover of goods in Aarhus is increasing, and a new ferry terminal, which will open in mid-2020, will increase the number of passenger cars and lorries on Østhavnsvej. An upgrade of Østhavnsvej is therefore necessary, and in the light of this, the port of Aarhus has chosen to involve the consultancy firm COWI, which are experts in traffic calculations. COWI has recently presented a preliminary proposal for how Østhavnsvej can appear and function. Port of Aarhus' Technical Manager Anne Zachariassen emphasizes that this is only a proposal and that nothing yet has been decided.


The outer port in the city council

16 August 2018

A small first step for the port of Aarhus, but a big step for the city, the region and the nation. The step was taken when the city council discussed a case about the outer port for the first time during the summer, which is a future expansion of the port of Aarhus. The step initially consisted only of a discussion by the city council of an application for an environmental assessment. The port of Aarhus has applied to the city council for permission to carry out an environmental assessment of the outer port, which is a three-stage expansion of the port of Aarhus of a total of 1,400,000 square meters. The first stage is expected to be completed in 2030, the next in 2048 and the third and last in 2060.


Port of Aarhus lifted all of Denmark's Progress

11 June 2018

In 2017, 51,000 more containers were handled in all the major Danish ports together than in the previous year. But Port of Aarhus alone had an increase of 58,000 containers in the same period, and thus the two container operators of Port of Aarhus accounted for the whole of Denmark's progress - and more.
