To the media

Access to the port area

Representatives of the media are as far as possible guaranteed access to the Rauma port area. Exceptional conditions and actions required to handle them may make it necessary to deny access. 

Access permit to the permit area

Representatives of the media wishing to access the port area shall contact the Harbour Master and Port Security Officer (+358 (0)50 303 9704) or in case he is unavailable, the Port Office (+358 (0)2 83711). The person who grants permission, informs the Main Gate Info. The representative of the media will obtain the access permit from the Main Gate Info when arriving in the port. However, the permit does not authorise visits to companies operating in the port area or photographing in the areas controlled by such companies; permission for a visit and photographing must be obtained from the company concerned.

Access permits to the areas of companies operating in the port

If companies operating in the port area wish to invite representatives of the media to their companies or to the areas of their companies, they issue access permits for this purpose. Representatives of the media should contact the companies directly.

Photographing

Photographing within the port area is only allowed with the permission of Port of Rauma. Please contact Esa Vuori, Harbour Master and Port Security Officer, esa.vuori@portofrauma.com, tel. +358 (0)50 303 9704.
