Ostrava Airport Multimodal Park
Will Help to Move Cargo Traffic from Roads to Railway In June 2019 Moravian-Silesian Region Governor Ivo Vondrák and Ostrava Mayor Tomáš Macura attended the festive opening of the first hall in the Ostrava Airport Multimodal Park logistic centre, located next to Leoš Janáček International Airport Ostrava. Mošnov will boast of the largest logistics centre in Central Europe directly connected to a European motorway and railway networks when the Ostrava Airport Multimodal Park is finished. The first hall, with an area of 57,133m2, has been ready for almost a year. The total area of the multimodal park is 52ha with a plan to provide over 234,000m2 of warehousing and production facilities, which are going to be built in several stages. The second hall is currently being built to offer contractors an area of 48,864m2 from early 2020. There will be railways sidings connecting the two greatest halls to the railway infrastructure, with a combined-transport terminus designed for trains up to 700 metres long, allowing for a large part of cargo to be moved from the road to railways with ease. Another significant event took place in September when the Moravian-Silesian Region Government, the Statutory City of Ostrava, the Railways Infrastructure Manager (Správa železniční a dopravní cesty), the joint stock company Concens Investments, and Port Antwerp signed the Memorandum on Mutual Assistance and Cooperation. Over 235 million tons of cargo handled in 2018 make Antwerp the fastest growing port in Europe. The port sees a great opportunity to enhance business relations with the Moravian-Silesian Region and the whole of the Czech Republic through the newly built multimodal terminus in
Mošnov. “We support railway traffic as a crucial alternative to road transport,” said Mr Wim Dillen, representing the company Port of Antwerp. “The Multimodal Park has the ambition to become one of the most significant logistics centres which support long-term sustainability.” The developer of the project is Concens Investments, a company focusing their activities on commercial and industrial real estate. Mr Petr Kalina, statutory CEO of the company, commented on the construction of the logistics centre in Mošnov, saying, “Our decision to make the Ostrava Airport Multimodal Park project actually happen fully corresponds with our investments in the clear, long-term plan to create a portfolio of premium industrial premises with added value for prospective contractors. The obvious added value in Mošnov is the terminus of combined transport which is in direct connection to the warehousing and production capacities, absolutely unique within a Central European context.” Text: Ostrava Airport Multimodal Park s.r.o.
