Castellum and the Port of Gothenburg form a joint venture for the new Nordic logistics hub
GTEBORG, Sweden, June 22, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Castellum has signed a letter of intent with the Port of Gothenburg jointly develop the HalvorsÃ¤ng region into a leading Nordic logistics hub. The collaboration will be carried out in a partner company where Castellum and the port have equal shares. Castellum invests around 1 billion Swedish kronor in the project.
-It is a collaboration that will benefit Gothenburg competitiveness and create new jobs in the region. We are proud to have been selected and hope for a positive decision from the city council, says Henrik Saxborn, CEO of Castellum.
Castellum was chosen as the port’s partner through a selection process where funding and sustainability were important factors. The aim of the partner company is to jointly develop, design and build logistics properties within HalvorsÃ¤ng, and then own, manage and lease the premises. A letter of intent has been signed by the parties.
HalvorsÃ¤ng is located directly north of Skarvikshamnen in an ideal location for the processing of inbound goods discharged through the port of Gothenburg, for further transport across Scandinavia by truck or train. The surface area amounts to approximately 270,000 mÂ². area, of which approximately 155,000 mÂ². is the gross area. The site must be fully developed within 4 years, with an estimated start of the project in 2021. Castellum’s initial investment for 50% of the value of the land is estimated at around 400 SEK-450 million. In addition, Castellum estimates an investment of around 550 million Swedish kronor.
The municipal council of Gothenburg approved the port’s request last week, and the matter will be considered by city council in September.
-It is still early in the process but our absolute intention is to contribute to successful development. Thanks to its proximity to the port and major traffic routes, HalvorsÃ¤ng has all the qualifications of an ideal location for the sustainable logistics of the future, says Mariette Hilmersson, CEO of Castellum Region West.
