Panamax Bulk – removing bottleneck in the Deep Port of Kokkola

The Panamax Bulk project improves efficient utilisation of port infrastructure and optimizes the safety and efficiency of handling of bulk cargo in the port.

The project will remove the current bottleneck in the Deep Port of Kokkola by extending the existing quay by 130 meters. This enables the simultaneous loading and unloading of three Panamax sized dry bulk vessels. Transport of goods by large Panamax-sized vessels reduces emissions per transported cargo unit.
