Harbour basin utilisation rates are of considerable importance to a port. Ens...Read more
The Port of Thyborøn is located close to the Jutland Reef. The reef is only a few nautical miles from the coast. The port is therefore ideally located for dredging gravel to make concrete. The dredging vessels only have to sail a short distance to the reef, which makes for optimal operating conditions. The raw gravel is sorted on land and loaded either onto lorries and transported directly to concrete factories or onto freighters and shipped to customers in Denmark and abroad.
In 2007, we designated an area at the south end of the port to the gravel operators to provide optimal conditions for dusty and sometimes noisy operations as the area is close to Limfjordskaj but farthest removed from the town.
If you have questions or wish to lease part of the gravel extraction zone, please contact the Port Administration Office.
