Ferry terminal, Riga, Latvia
Optimisation of capacity

The steady growth of the cruise ship market and of ferry traffic volumes in the Baltic Sea required the port capacity of the Freeport of Riga to be increased. An engineering consortium led by Inros Lackner was contracted to assess appropriate sites in the port of Riga with respect to a successful long-term development of both market sectors, and to carry out all associated design work including the obtaining of official approvals for terminal construction. In relation to the project’s financing, an investment plan was developed and applications for EU cohesion fund financing were submitted. The new terminal entered into service in 2013.

The following services were provided:

  • Market analysis / traffic projections
  • Site selection and terminal layout development following an assessment of alternatives
  • Technical planning / design and cost estimations for the terminal, including quay facilities, ferry berth, open storage areas, terminal buildings / gate areas and civil engineering works / utilities supply
  • Technical planning / design and cost estimations for the terminal connections to Riga’s existing transport infrastructure and utilities network
  • Environmental impact assessment
  • Obtaining of official approvals
