Extension of Port of Hanstholm

The Port of Hanstholm had wanted to expand the harbour for a long time in order to improve the service of the present core business, the fishing industry, and to provide goods facilities, sustainable energy and aquaculture. The project was carried out as a design & build contract together with our sister company VG Entreprenør A/S. The project comprised a new habour entrance to a north-eastern location instead of the former north-western location, which was very exposed to waves. In addition, the water depth at the harbour entrance was increased, 130,000 cubic metres of new hinterland area was established as well as 1,400 metres of outer breakwaters and 350 metres of new quay facility in front of the hinterland area.

See how we cast the 7,000-tons-heavy pier head, towed it from Swinoujscie past Kronborg Castle to Frederikshavn and further on to Hanstholm where we positioned it very precisely – link to video (remember to turn on the sound).
