Stockholm’s tender port of Nynashman is being fitted with a 260m-long SeaWalk extendible/retractable floating pier (pictured) which will be inaugurated with a call from Royal Princess on May 10.

“We are very happy to be able to make things easier for the passengers and the cruise shipping companies are all very positive about our investment, as they have good experience of using the same solution at other ports,” says Henrik Ahlqvist, manager cruise and ferry & deputy harbour master Ports of Stockholm.

Calls to the Swedish port are down this year on 2015 at 222 to the capital and 14 to Nynashamn but numbers are up again in 2017 at 237 and 20 respectively.

Turnarounds this year number 56 (with 97 overnight calls), 500,000 passengers and 27 vessels over 300m in length. Next year there will be 67 turnarounds, 655,000 passengers and 55 vessels over 300m in length.
