Arctic logistics base
Skjervøy is the home port for our two work boats operating in Northern Norwegian waters. From our base we provide a range of maritime services to local industries.
We are particularly active in the acquaculture industry. Our vessels regularly transport installations and equipment to the offshore fish farms. Additionally, we supply our own-produced aluminium containers. These are used for storage and shipment of fish farm equipment.
With our versatile boats, we also build, repair, upgrade and strengthen quays in the local region. Having our own on-site workshop enables us to offer additional services - welding, mechanical tasks and any general repair that may arise. No task is too big or small. Read more here.

Our presence in Northern Norway enables us to facilitate voyages through the Northern Sea Route (NSR). This route being along the Russian coast of Siberia to the Far East.
Compared to sailing via the Suez Canal, the NSR to China shortens the distance of traditional shipping by more than 40%
During the favourable ice season, this route saves both cargo and shipowners fuel consumption, transport time and reduces CO2 emissions. Fuel savings, with a reduced voyage time of approx. 15 days, are substantial.
As energy and mineral resources in the Northern Region develop effective alternative routes between Europe and the Far East will be of increased importance. Read about our pioneering voyage in 2010 here.
We deliver quality gneiss rock suitable for offshore and onshore projects directly from our terminal in Kirkenes.
We are proud of having the longest transshipment experience in northern Norway. Our services enable a quicker turn around of our clients' vessels and increases transport capacity.
