Aabenraa Harbor renovation is progressing
Over the past year, MT Højgaard has been busy renovating Nyhavns Westquay in Aabenraa Harbor. 500 meters of new and modern quay is now ready to be put into use, and now the work continues in Sydhavn, which will be renovated for 20 million kroner.
"Nyhavns Westquay is completed and is back in full operation. The process has been very good, partly due to a positive dialogue with the developer and the developer's consultants before the work started," says Michael Dalsgaard Sørensen from MT Højgaard, who has been project manager of the renovation project.
In spring last year, MT Højgaard started renovating Nyhavn in Aabenraa Harbor. The quay is originally from 1922, and some of the structures had reached the end of their days. A major renovation was therefore necessary for the quay to continue its daily operations with loading and unloading of bulk goods such as stone, gravel and cement.
However, there have also been challenges along the way. In the efforts to reinforce the quay, the sheet-pile would repeatedly slip out from the dock. To keep the quay wall in place, it was therefore decided to purchase additional anchors that could help stabilize the wall. Altogether it took three months longer than planned.
Work on the sheet-pile wall was carried out in close cooperation with Aabenraa Harbor as the dock was partially in operation during the renovation. The renovation of Nyhavn has a total budget of 40 million kroner, and now its Sydhavn's turn. This task has also been awarded to MT Højgaard.
