Another record year for Hirtshals Harbour

Another record year for Hirtshals Harbour

08-04-2016 12:00:00


Hirtshals Harbour set another record in 2015. Denmark's seventh largest commercial port achieved a satisfactory financial result of 14.5 million kroner. Revenue increased to 73.8 million kroner. It is the sixth consecutive year thath the harbour experienced an overall increase in revenue.

"From 2014 to 2015 we have realized a turnover increase of 7.4 percent. It is a development that is created through organic growth in the port's core business segments. Furthermore, it is important that we continue the economic consolidation, which is one of our objectives," says chairman Anker Laden-Andersen.

The port has in 2015 experienced growth and sales records across most key business areas of transport and fishing segments. Although not all business areas have contributed equally to the growth, it's generally a positive image, accounting of economic activities in Hirtshals.

"It becomes increasingly difficult to continue the growth rates of the magnitude that we have realized in recent years, and therefore we must be increasingly targeted in the development work and the initiatives we have, so we do not lose speed.

Further growth is expected in 2016. More companies in Hirtshals launch new initiatives implemented through the development of new businesses and the expansion of existing activities. Already in 2016, the Safe Ocean Services establishment made its mark on the harbor as the company at the beginning of the year has two residential rigs in for maintenance.

"We have very positive expectations for the coming year, which has been reinforced by the fact that in February 2016, a route was started between Zeebrugge, Hirtshals and Gothenburg. I see Hirtshals develop into a global logistics center and business area over the coming years, where the formal boundaries between the port and industrial areas are erased in even greater extent than today," says Anker Laden-Andersen.
