A showcase for the port of the future
In autumn 2016 Karmsund Port Authority’s ‘Intelliport’ concept was born: the Port Authority decided it would spend over NOK 1 billion on becoming Norway’s largest and most environmentally friendly freight port.
The objective is to be virtually climate neutral by 2030. The port will also be expanded by the equivalent of 22 football pitches, and this will help it to become the largest in Norway. Karmsund Port Authority has implemented a range of ambitious measures over the last four years. KBN has financed nine of these, which range from installing Norway’s largest mobile harbour crane, which is also electric, to installing a shore-side power supply and procuring electric cars and trucks. These measures will help to turn the port into a showcase for the port of the future.
