Greenlandic vessels choose Hirtshals

Greenlandic vessels choose Hirtshals

At the moment, several Greenlandic vessels are berthed in Hirtshals. All vessels are going to get major ship services. In late January, Sarfaqittuk from Arctic Umiaq Line arrived. A week after, Pajuttat from Royal Arctic Line arrivied. The two vessels are in Hirtshals until mid-February.

"There are many opportunities to undergo ship service of this kind in both the North Atlantic, Norway and Denmark. But what gives us and Hirtshals a slight advantage compared to other places, is our covered floating dock. We are not dependent on the weather forecast for the performance of services such as painting. In addition, we have very good cooperation between businesses in Hirtshals, so customers only need to contact one of us. Then the company assists in contact with other necessary artisans," says director of Hirtshals Yard, Rasmus Brohus.

Both Sarfaqittuk and Pajuttat are to undergo major painting services. In addition, the vessels will also undergo general service such as replacing windows and overhaul of propellers and trusts. In addition to the two major Greenland vessels, the shrimp trawler Sakkak from Sisimiut is also in port at Hirtshals Yard.

Sakkak had a thorough overhaul completed and has gone from being an older vessel to stand as a brand new vessel with new factory, new games and new living quarters.

At Hirtshals Yard, companies have good experience in servicing Greenlandic vessels. The companies have done servicing and maintenance of Greenland prawn trawlers for several years, which have also been able to land their catches in Hirtshals.
