As the main port for foreign trade and passenger traffic services in Finland, we lead the way in port operations. We operate based on the principle of continuous development, by managing and developing port operations in collaboration with operators, whilst providing a framework and producing new, modern services to support the overall port entity.
Helsinki’s passenger harbours, which are located right in the city centre, are a vital part of Helsinki’s business life and character.
Development of traffic connections is important from the perspective of the well-being and business life of the Helsinki region, and the Port of Helsinki, through its own operations, is actively involved in the development of the harbour areas, as well as working in collaboration with the departments of the City of Helsinki to improve the smooth flowing of the road and transport network.
The Port of Helsinki has undertaken two major projects this millennium. One was the construction of Vuosaari Harbour and its infrastructure. This was completed in November 2008. The second is the ongoing construction of West Terminal 2 and the area’s traffic planning. The new terminal was opened to passengers on February 2017. Traffic arrangements are due for completion in late autumn.
