Construction and loading system for the Joensuu deepwater port
Funded by Interreg II Karelia 1996-1999

Objective of the project

As part of the project, a new timber terminal was going to be built on the territory managed by Joensuun Laivaus Oy in the deep-water port of Joensuu. The terminal under construction could be designed specifically for unloading and storing timber imported from the Republic of Karelia. The terminal was planned to provide reception, temporary storage and further loading of sawn timber imported from Russia. The total area of the new terminal was planned to be 6,000 m². The railway was planned to run through the terminal, so timber could be loaded indoors. Increasing the volume of goods and accelerating the provision of services with the new terminal was planned to require the purchase of a new crane and forklift suitable for use in the port. The new warehouse was a prerequisite for the processing of pulp and sawnwood imported from Russia and necessary for the expansion of activities. The existing indoor halls was planned to be used by existing customers and goods for shipping, so there was no room for lumber and pulp from Russia.
