Port of Oulu Ltd – ready for growth

For the Port of Oulu, the last few years have been the busiest in its history in terms of development.

We have built a lot of new fields and railways, and we have increased pier capacity. The most important modernization was the work to dredge a fairway 12.5 meters in depth. The work was carried out at the end of 2018. The new, deeper fairway will provide the port with greater growth opportunities. Alongside the dredging work, we also expanded the surface area of the port by more than 50 hectares. This will provide a wide range of opportunities for new and existing customers using the port. And the development does not end there: from 2019 to 2021, the field areas will be expanded by several hectares, and we will increase pier capacity along the new 12.5-metre-deep fairway.

Digitalization is challenging us to go further. The Port of Oulu does not intend to stand by and watch development occur elsewhere – we have taken a pioneering role in development.

Working with our partners, we have created a vision for the future development of the port. We took the first step at the end of 2018 when we made an agreement for a new, very fast LTE network to be constructed at the port. The new network will enable entirely new forms of digital service for port operators and customers. Alongside infrastructure construction, ICT development is playing a key role in our expanding service offering.
