Port of Kollafjørður is located 23 km north of Tórshavn and more or less at the geographical centre of the Faroe Islands, Kollafjørður is the third harbour area controlled directly by Tórshavnar havn (Tórshavn Port Authority).
Kollafjørður has been specifically earmarked by Tórshavnar havn for development, yet this fast-growing harbour area is already home to a range of thriving businesses that together make a major contribution to the local economy. These businesses comprise:
- A processing plant for farmed salmon
- A cold storage company operating a multifunctional, BIP-approved facility with a capacity of 10,000 tonnes
- The world’s largest fish refrigeration plant, specialising in pelagic (top feeding) species.
The level of business undertaken at Kollafjørður is such that the harbour receives regular and direct mainline calls by a leading North Atlantic-based operator. This liner operation is supported by some 3,500 square metres of open space dedicated to container handling, stacking and related activities.
