New facilities and green port development for Port of Hirtshals

To support the Port of Hirtshals’ continued development and accommodate the customers’ future demand,

the Port of Hirtshals will now be updated.

The development within cargo transport in recent years is expected to accelerate further in the coming years. This is based on the advantages offered by transport by sea in terms of being more environmentally friendly and lowering congestions on the roads.

To accommodate this development, the facilities at the Port of Hirtshals will be expanded with a new entrance and an outer port basin which should improve the navigational conditions significantly.

This will make it possible to call the Port of Hirtshals with larger vessels and in harsher weather conditions than today.

Furthermore, it will be easier for vessels to navigate the port, as well as their loading and unloading opportunities will be improved with further quay areas and ro/ro berths.

The expansion will also include more commercial land and parking areas for trailers and lorries.
