Huge investments in Bremen Ports’ competitiveness

BREMEN/BREMERHAVEN. Bremen has invested heavily in modernising its port infrastructure like never before. There are currently nine projects in progress, with another eleven initiatives in the pipeline. The renovation of the Westkaje Quay in Kaiserhafen III, the recon-struction of “Kaje 66” quay at the entrance to the north lock and the reconstruction of Quays 64 and 82 in the fishing harbour are worthy of mention. Furthermore, parts of the fishing harbour lock will be renewed and the port railway extended. Columbuskaje is the biggest project and is due to open in 2025, with the new build budgeted at 80 million euros. “The renovation projects in our ports are all on schedule and aimed at guaranteeing the competitiveness of our ports in the long term,” stated Dr Claudia Schilling, Senator for Science and Ports. “Over the next ten years, we will be investing more than half a billion euros in the infrastructure of our ports since we need a new bridge at the Nordschleuse lock, desperately need to replace the old container quays in the southern sections, some of which are more than fifty years old, and we will also do what is necessary to ensure our ports continue to provide the basis for business and employment in the port areas of Bremerhaven und Bremen in the coming decades and beyond.”
