Kundziņsala is an island on the right bank of the Daugava in the central part of the port of Riga. Currently Kundziņsala is the most dynamic port development area with existing deep-water berths and options for construction of new berths. The most powerful container and bulk cargo terminals in the Port of Riga are operating in Kundzinsala, as well as modern warehouses and logistics centers.
Kundziņsala boasts an excellent railway and road transport infrastructure. Currently, a new road overpass is being built on the port territories in Kundziņsala, which will connect Kundziņsala with the Latvian road network in 2023, bypassing the center of Riga. Kundziņsala is an ideal place for new large-scale terminal projects that require deep-water berths for operational purposes. At present, 75.6 ha of the port territory in Kundziņsala are available for the implementation of new projects.
There are 3 free territories of Kundziņsala available for land lease and business operation:
The Freeport of Riga territory in Spilve includes the part of Spilve airfield and the adjacent land. In terms of its area this free territory is one of the largest available for implementation of mega-scale projects in European ports. New wide-gauge (1520 mm) railway networks, expected Rail Baltica connection from Riga International Airport with a European 1435 mm gauge railway, berths and road infrastructure provide unique preconditions to create a single logistics complex, which will include the port, wide-gauge railway, narrow-gauge railway, airport and motor roads.
Due to big size of available territory wind energy projects, new container terminal construction (the existing container terminals of the Freeport of Riga are currently located only on the right bank of the Daugava), warehouse construction, large-scale production, logistics and other projects can be implemented in Spilve.
Mangaļsala is a port area on the right bank of the Daugava, right at the mouth of the river flowing into the Gulf of Riga. The 42 ha free territories are located in the southern part of Mangaļsala and are avaiable for dry bulk and general cargo terminal development, as well as for the expansion of existing terminals. There are plans of developing a recreation territory for Riga residents in the port territory in the northern part of Mangaļsala.
In Mangaļsala, 1 free territory is available for land lease and business operation:
Krievu Island is a port area on the left bank of the Daugava, where the largest investments of the Freeport of Riga have been made in recent years, building one of the most modern and environmentally friendly coal handling terminals in Europe with modern deep-water berths, railway and access roads.
The 7 ha free territory on Krievu Island is available for the development of various types of industrial production facilities, including complex technological projects with specific site requirements (for example, petroleum refinery). The newly built road junction, new railway access roads, including railway stations, the available high-pressure gas pipeline and high-capacity electricity connection make Krievu Island the most attractive and fastest-growing investment area on the left bank of the Daugava.
