With a strategic location close to upcoming offshore wind farms in the North Sea, all-weather navigation with an east-facing entrance and a host of expert local companies with extensive experience, the Port of Thyboron offers the entire package to the offshore industry. The port is used as an installation base and a service port for offshore wind farms, and has a quayside wind turbine test site in Sydhavnen.

Highlights for offshore wind

Strategic location for North Sea energy projects

Thyboron’s strategic location close to future offshore wind farms in the North Sea – just 7 nautical miles from Vesterhav Nord and 20 nautical miles from Thor – offers synergies to the offshore wind industry for efficient operations. The port can be entered in any weather conditions due to its east-facing entrance, and is close to the future energy island and wind energy projects along the Norwegian coast.

11-metre-deep fairway to the project quay

The Port of Thyboron is growing, and so are our customers’ vessels. They are becoming larger and larger, and this is having a bearing on all aspects of the port’s business activities. Increasingly large offshore vessels are entering the Port of Thyboron. We are therefore very pleased to have deepened an 11-metre-deep-water channel from the North Sea to the project quay Limfjordskaj II in the southern part of the port. The large offshore vessels benefit from the increased water depth and the sheltered location close to the North Sea.
