Project Details

Project Name

Aarhus Ferry Terminal




Marine works



Port of Aarhus


Client consultant: Rambøll

MT Højgaard has been the general contractor on the new ferry terminal in Aarhus. The contract comprised establishment of quays, foundations for ramps, subbase course in the ferry berths, piers, enrockments, and dredging and filling on the street Østhavnsvej.

Moving the terminal eases traffic

The ferry terminal in Aarhus has gotten a new location as it has been moved from Pier 3 in central Aarhus to the East Port. 

This means less traffic in central Aarhus on the roads leading to and from the terminal. It also means less ferry traffic, because ferry berths and waiting areas for cars will be placed more functionally so that cars and lorries can enter and exit the ferry more quickly when it moors in the East Port.

Very soft ocean floor

The project is characterised by how it has been executed on a soft ocean floor with a lot of ocean silt, which is an organic material at the bottom of the ocean making the ocean floor unstable.

The soft ocean floor means that we had to be cautious in the execution of the project to not turn over the ocean silt. It was a complicated process, because we had to dig deep to come across viable soil.
