The heart of Umeå Eco Industrial Park
Umeå Northern Railway Terminal is strategically located in the heart of the Umeå Eco Industrial Park, with access to Umeå’s other railway infrastructure and the North Bothnia Line, as well as the road network with the E4 motorway passing close to the area.
Umeå Northern Railway Terminal is a competition-neutral intermodal terminal in northern Umeå, enabling green, fossil-free transport to and from the area. The terminal will be completed in 2023 and can be taken into service on completion of the first part of the North Bothnia Line, Umeå-Dåva, which is planned for 2025.
The terminal complements Umeå Municipality’s other logistics facilities, such as the port and the combined terminal in the city centre, Umeå freight yard. The terminal serves the region’s business community and the establishments in and around Umeå Eco Industrial Park.
The site covers a total area of 43 hectares, or about 69 football pitches. In the first stage, a railway track of 400 m will be built, providing a terminal area of about 16,000 m2. In the future, additional tracks can be built and extended to as much as 750 m in length, providing a total terminal area of about 56,000 m2.
Deviating main tracks that connect directly to the North Bothnia Line, totalling around 1,000 m, can be used for the arrival, dismantling and building of new train sets. In connection with the loading and unloading tracks, there is a separate 100-metre track for maintenance.
The terminal is owned by INAB, which is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the terminal via a contractor.
16 000 m2
Umeå Eco Industrial Park is a 600 ha area with a focus on establishments in the fields of environmental technology, recycling, green energy and local production. The site has a unique character with a focus on sustainability and circularity, and its ambition is to become a world-leading centre for green innovation.
"INAB has played a central role in the project."
