Together with the port operator, Euroports Pietarsaari Oy Ab, the port is one of the most efficient in the world that deals with wood-processing industry products.

Port of Pietarsaari, Port infrastructure – our strength

Trade and shipping were the original reasons for the founding of the town of Pietarsaari. The first Finnish ship to sail around the world from 1844–1847 was the bark ship Herkules out of Pietarsaari.

A lot has happened since then. The harbor infrastructure has developed rapidly together with various industries in the Pietarsaari region that needed the port for their exports and imports. It is not by chance that UPM, Pietarsaari Mills – currently one of Europe’s biggest pulp mills – and Alholmens Kraft – the world’s biggest bio-fuelled power plant – are located just a stone’s throw from the port.

Together with the port operator, Euroports Pietarsaari Oy Ab, the port is one of the most efficient in the world that deals with wood-processing industry products.

In late autumn 2015 the channel to the port of Pietarsaari was authorized by the Finnish Transport Agency to build the new 11-metre draft. The new draft makes it possible for ships to carry about 90 percent more cargo in a more ecological way compared to our earlier 9-meter channel. This means increased turnaround for our customers.

In 2016–2019, investments have been made to improve the capacity for holding stock in the area by constructing two new 4.000 m2 warehouses and 18.000 m2 storage area.
