The Port of Hirtshals is one of the largest commercial ports in Denmark, and in 2011 the Port of Hirtshals entered the offshore market for service and repair of offshore units together with a range of companies with competences and experience within field.
Together with external business partners, the companies at and around the Port of Hirtshals cover a wide field of offshore competences. The companies have the necessary certificates for working on offshore units and possess competences within e.g. forging, machinery, painting, coating and documentation.
The Port of Hirtshals has the facilities to provide the right settings for service, repair and renovation of offshore units. Units are placed at the inner part of a port basin so that work on units can be done without any inconvenience for and from the port's other traffic. The mooring facilities in East Basin 2, where offshore units are normally placed, provide opportunities for handling of both floating units and jack up units. Likewise, the area contains installations for setting up offices, canteens and workshops.
