A specialist activity for Norrköping is the handling of project cargoes such as heavy lift and out-of-gauge items. The port has what may be the leading handling equipment and expertise of its kind in Sweden, in order to serve the Swedish industry.
The Inner Harbour has a 350 tonne heavy lift crane for loading and discharging of transformers, turbines and other special cargoes. A new rail connection to the crane has been completed, and the investment in a new surface for the storage of heavy goods.
For ABB and Siemens, the crane is a vital resource for their global export of transformers and turbines. Also other industries are taking advantage of the lifting capacity, including Nord Stream project with the construction of the gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea.
