Haugesund Cargo Terminals
Haugesund Cargo Terminals at Husøy is one of the largest traffic ports in Western Norway. The port is already one of the most important hubs in the country, and the port will play an even greater role in the future.
The unique combination of being a National Fishery port in combination with a modern container terminal, roro and general cargo adds benefits to both industries.
Husøy is centrally located in relation to Western Norway and to the Haugesund region. There is no deviation from the main artery that runs through the Karmsund Sound. In conjunction with expanding vessel capacity, the need has grown for a transhipment terminal between international and domestic cargoes in Western Norway, where goods can be transferred to/from smaller vessels plying domestic waters. Husøy meets all the criteria required of such a transshipment hub.
Conditions are well facilitated for the development of new commercial areas in the corridor between the traffic and fishing ports at Husøy and Haugesund Airport, Karmøy. In the future, this area will become even more attractive as a result of new road systems, increased scheduled ship traffic and good air connections in the immediate vicinity. In the fishing port, there is considerable freezing and cooling capacity with uneven demand throughout the year.
