Our goal is for the port to receive its first ships by 2026. However, progress will depend on political will, as well as the complexity of the design and construction processes. In order to carry out the necessary impact assessments, the politicians in Askøy must start a planning process to explore various options. If that process can begin in 2020, it will be possible to carry it out in parallel with the plans for the development of the Port of Bergen, and for fjord tourism and maritime transport by Vy Fjord1 Reiseliv, between now and 2026.
The government’s aim is for all Norwegian ports to be zero-emission by 2030. At a national level, Kildn wants to play an important role in the government’s push for greener shipping, and help to move traffic off the roads and onto the water with the help of innovative solutions and partnerships.
