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.
Offshore wind customers
Numerous offshore wind tasks have already been performed from the Port of Thyboron. Various preliminary seabed surveys, O&M for offshore wind farms, mobilisation of offshore vessels and installation of foundations, wind turbines and submarine cables, have all been carried out from the Port of Thyboron.Offshore wind reference list
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.Navigation
