Horsens Harbor has space problems
Increased busyness creates space problems at Horsens Harbor, where all freight handling takes place on the south dock, because the north dock is to be converted to houses. According to the Harbor Director, space problems can hamper the harbor’s companies' expansion opportunities.
"In the autumn there have been many days when all available areas have been in use. It is not just about disposable berths; It is also about storage and operating space to handle the large quantities of goods,” says Harbor Director Claus Holm Christensen.
"We may end up with our success slowing down business opportunities for the companies in the harbor. There are no easy solutions to the challenge, but we are constantly working to solve the problem - even in the longer term," says Claus Holm Christensen.
The harbor carried out a series of noise measurements this autumn and awaits the final results.
"There is no doubt that we will do what we can to reduce the noise our neighbors are subject to and that we will comply with the applicable noise limits. In addition, we continuously investigate how we can reduce noise from our cranes when the ships are loaded and unloaded. Having said that, it also means that a commercial port cannot live its life in silence, but we work hard to work as discreetly as possible," said Claus Holm Christensen
"When the noise measurements are in place, we will continue the dialogue with our neighbors about future work".
