The Port of Hirtshals' corona measures

After the announcement by the Danish Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen on Wednesday evening that the country will be closed down in order to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infections, the Port of Hirtshals decided to adapt the activities of the port to the current situation.

To limit the risk of spreading COVID-19, the Port of Hirtshals now take measures which mean that the entire port office is closed for entrance. Port control can therefore only be contacted on telephone +45 98 94 14 22 and / or by e-mail

The service of the port area will also be limited, as the staff in Technical Service will be divided into two teams working in shifts, and therefore there will only be half of the staff at work at the same time. In this way, the Port of Hirtshals will maintain a minimum level of service and thus reduce the inconveniences for the customers of the port.

From Friday morning, the port administration and management will work from home and will only be available by e-mail and / or on telephone. Similarly, the port will postpone all scheduled meetings for the time being.

- As one of Denmark's large ports, the Port of Hirtshals is part of the country's critical infrastructure, and we are therefore adapting our operations as well as ensuring the critical functions of our organisation. This will enable us to service our customers at the highest possible level and at the same time comply with the government's aim of limiting the spread of coronavirus for the benefit of both the community and the port's employees, says Jens Kirketerp Jensen, managing director of the Port of Hirtshals.

For the time being, the above applies until 10 May 2020.
