Port of Naantali
The Port of Naantali is a public port in Finland, operating in two locations, in Kantasatama and in the island of Luonnonmaa. The main volumes come from liquid and dry bulk materials, as well as ferry goods. Naantali is the second largest Finish ferry terminal in terms of cargo traffic.
Today more than half of all trucks shipped between Finland and Sweden are carried through the Port of Naantali. There is one ro-pax route to Kapellskär operated by Finnlines and one ro-ro service to Långnäs provided by Lillgaard.
To meet the requirements of growing ferry and unitized cargo traffic, the port made significant investments in its infrastructure, which include a new ro-ro pier with adjustable upper and below ramps and an adjacent handling area for trailers and vehicles. The port offers an advanced storage infrastructure and various value-added services strategic for bulk goods operations. The storage capacity consists of 80,000 sqm in Kantasatama and 14,000 sqm in Luonnonmaa, which administrates also 11 tanks (5.000 cbm in total). In particular, the port is well suited to handle powder-type dry bulk materials like salt, soda and other products that require packing or repacking. Other investments include the fairway, that has been deepened from 13 to 15.3 m to enable fully loaded aframax tankers to berth at the oil pier by the refinery. The island of Luonnonmaa hosts also a shipyard with the largest dry dock for repairs in Northern Europe and almost hundred ships visiting annually.
Naantali keeps searching for partners to establish new and strengthen existing routes with other ports, being particularly interested in lines to the southern Baltic. Moreover, the city of Naantali welcomes industrial enterprises to buy or rent industrial properties in the vicinity of the port.
