Color Line signs new long-term contract with Port of Kiel

Norwegian shipping and ferry company Color Line has signed a new long-term contract to continue using Kiel as its base.

Color Fantasy Color Line CEO Trond Kleivdal and the Managing Director of the Port of Kiel Dirk Claus clinched a further ten years of co-operation, after which Claus said: “Color Line’s liner service between Kiel and Oslo is an exemplary success story. We are proud to be the partners of this shipping company.”

He added: “Even after 15 years of operation, Kiel’s Norwegenkai Terminal used by the ships of the Color Line remains among the top facilities in the whole of northern Europe. We offer a first-class terminal in an attractive inner-city location with the best-possible rail and road links.”

The terminal was inaugurated in 1997 by Norway’s Queen Sonja. Its quayside was upgraded in 2004 and expanded earlier this year to prepare the facility for the demands of today’s ships.

To date the Port of Kiel, supported by the German federal state of Schleswig-Holstein, has invested more than €60m in the facility. “The Norwegenkai Terminal now has all the infrastructure required for further growth in both the passenger and cargo transport sectors,” said Claus.

Today the biggest Baltic ferry ships currently in operation, Color Fantasy, pictured,  and Color Magic, serve on the route between Kiel and Oslo - the only daily ferry link between Germany and Norway.
