Completed in 2008, the construction and operation of container terminal CT 4 in this location required compensation measures and work on buildings in the nearby urban zone.
Bremenports, the company which runs the port, contacted around 85 homeowners and residents in the centre of Weddewarden and certain districts of Imsum, to offer to equip their homes with high-quality soundproofed windows and insulated doors. Each home situated near the terminal has also been equipped with a new ventilation system, to guarantee clean air in houses with new class III windows.
These noise protection measures are also aimed at residents of Weddewarden and Imsum living further from the terminal. Specialists review cases individually, based on forecast exposure to noise pollution.
