80-thousand square meters of new port and industrial area at the Port of Runavík.

The Municipality of Runavík is planning to build 80,000 square meters of new area for port and industrial purposes.

The interaction between the port and the industrial area is very important to a large part of the industry that takes place along the Skálafjord. At the same time the demand for services from the Port of Runavík increases, as well as the industrial companies’ needs for areas close to the port also increases.

The project includes, in addition to the 80,000 m2 width of berth, 800 m of longside with a draft of 12-15 meters.

The first part of the construction work will be finished in 2016 and 2017.
