Vuosaari Harbour
Vuosaari Harbour ( Vuosaaren satama in Finnish; Nordsjö hamn in Swedish) is a seaport facility in Helsinki, Finland, opened in November 2008. The harbour, located in the suburb of Vuosaari in East Helsinki, handles goods traffic for the Greater Helsinki region, while passenger services remain in Helsinki city centre. Vuosaari Harbour has assumed the operations of two container harbours, West Harbour in the city centre and Sörnäinen Harbour, and will eventually also replace the oil harbour in Laajasalo. In addition, the railway depot in Pasila currently used by goods transport will be moved northwards. These processes release land for commercial and residential redevelopment. The harbour has a total land area of 150 hectares, including 90 hectares of land reclaimed by filling the sea. There is also a 75-hectare business park next to the harbour. The harbour project also included the extension of Ring III to the new seaport and a new railway line to be used for transporting goods in and out of the harbour.

History
The harbour site was previously the site of the Vuosaari shipyard of the state owned Valmet corporation. The shipyard started operations in 1974, replacing the old Imperial Russian shipyard in Katajanokka. The shipyard built a series of tankers for Neste (now Fortum) and a Norwegian customer. It later entered the cruiseferry market by building the M/S Birka Princess for Birka Line. After the merger with the Wärtsilä shipyards in 1987 and a subsequent bankruptcy, shipbuilding in Helsinki was moved to the Helsinki New Shipyard in Hernesaari. The shipyard was still occasionally for routine dockings and in emergencies, as in the case of the sinking and rescue of the Sally Albatross .
