ASCO in Farsund

Our base in Farsund was established in 2007 as the result of an outsourcing process by Alcoa for transport/logistics/stevedoring activities. Today we utilise our presence in Farsund to not only provide continued support to Alcoa activities, but also to provide cost effective supply base and storage options to our oil and gas client base.

Our Farsund base offers areas for long-term storage and preservation and serves as an ideal location for supporting and supplying onshore/offshore projects and operations. Our location in Farsund has a short sailing distance to the offshore fields in the southern part of the North Sea and is only a 2.5 hour drive from our main base in Tananger.

In 2017, we opened our new base-area in Farsund which features state-of-the-art warehouse facilities and provides cost effective long-term storage options to our clients. Our Ro-Ro quay capable of taking loads up to 350 tons, opened in summer 2018.

As part of the transport and stevedore service we offer on behalf of Alcoa, we handle both general cargo and aluminium shipments on a weekly sailing schedule between Port of Farsund and several destinations in Europe.
