Kick-off meeting of the Kotka Pax project

09 August 2019

The Port of HaminaKotka hosted the official kick-off meeting of the Kotka Pax project in the Mussalo Harbour, Kotka, on August 9th, 2019. Representatives of the Managing Authority of the programme as well as of all the project partners (Passenger Port of Saint Petersburg "Marine Façade", Finnish Customs and Finnish Border Guard) participated in the meeting. In the morning, the Managing Authority presented the administrative issues of the project, followed by a visit to the Kantasatama Harbour, where the new passenger terminal will be built. In the afternoon, the Finnish project partners discussed the practical implementation of the infrastructure investments.

Port of HaminaKotka Ltd. is acting as the Lead Partner of the project. The Lead Partner is coordinating the large infrastructure project of the passenger terminal in Kotkan Kantasatama, part of the Port of HaminaKotka, and is responsible for the planning and implementation of the construction works. Port of HaminaKotka will build the necessary port infrastructure for a passenger and cargo terminal. The new port infrastructure will enable smooth and efficient check-in and provide facilities for the customs and border control operations in the terminal.
Passenger Port of Saint Petersburg "Marine Façade" will assist the Lead Partner to develop the passenger flow processing services in the Port of HaminaKotka due to their considerable experience in the field. 
The project develops transport infrastructure of the Port of HaminaKotka in the Kotkan Kantasatama harbour to enable safe, secure, smooth and efficient border-crossings and easy mobility of seaborne passenger traffic with vehicles between Finland and Russia. The objective is to build the capacity for regular year-round ferry operations between Kotka and St. Petersburg and to provide a full range of services to cruise and ferry vessels and their passengers based on the established new terminal and check-in point.
