Haugesund Cargo Terminals, Husøy

24 hour service

Haugesund Cargo Terminals, Husøy is one of the largest sea transport harbours in western Norway today. The harbour is one of the most important hubs in the country and it is planned that it shall play an even greater role in the future when ferry use along the west coast is discontinued.

The harbour area at Husøy is primarily adapted to accommodate the route-going sea transport of general cargo (mainly containers and ro-ro freight) and the fishing sector, as Husøy is also a national fishery harbour. This is a unique combination and very positive for both the fishing industry and the general cargo harbour. 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 Karmsund Sound. In conjunction with expanding vessel capacity, the need has grown for a transshipment terminal between international and domestic cargoes in western Norway, where goods can be transferred to/from smaller vessels plying domestic waters. Husøy meets many of the criteria required of such a transshipment hub.

Conditions are well adapted for the development of new industrial sites along the corridor between the shipping transport and fishery harbours at Husøy and Haugesund Airport, Karmøy. In the future, this area will be even more sought after as a result of new road systems, increased route-going sea traffic, and good flight connections all in close proximity. The fishery harbour has significant freezing and refrigeration capacities, which has varied demand throughout the year.
