Interview with Johan Castwall, Chief Executive Officer, Ports of Stockholm

On October 2016, after three years of works, Ports of Stockholm inaugurated the new port of Värtahamnen. This reconstruction of Värtahamnen is part of the large urban development project, the Stockholm Royal Seaport. Stockholm Royal Seaport: this old industrial-port zone is gradually being turned into a port district which in 2030 will provide homes for 12,000 people, as well as 35,000 new jobs. Citizen consultation, new technologies, sustainable urban development, the project is nothing short of a demonstration of the smart port city. How the Port and the City of Stockholm are jointly working to achieve this ambitious goal?
