2017 will remain on the Port of Helsinki’s timeline as a year of fantastic achievements. In both passenger and cargo transport, we completed significant reforms that will enable our customers to conduct their operations even more smoothly.

In February, the new West Terminal 2 was opened bringing the much needed added capacity to the extremely busy liner traffic to and from Estonia.

The completion of the Metsä Fibre’s exports terminal in Vuosaari Harbour and the launch of the export transports from Äänekoski’s new bio product mill provided a significant addition to the growth in cargo transport.

The number of ship passengers, the amount of cargo transported through the harbours and the financial outcome of the Port of Helsinki Ltd reached a whole new level. The Port of Helsinki is now the busiest passenger port in Europe and the number one general port for international cargo traffic in Finland.
