Horvnes is the newest harbour and industrial area in Sandnessjøen, developed by the harbour authority and council to support the offshore oil industry. All operations have been performed without a single day away from work from injury since the establishment of the base in 2008/2009 (30,000 – 35,000 man hours per year).

We have 40,000 sqm in direct conjunction with the 3 public quays at Horvnes – where we also have an operators/stevedore agreement with the harbour authorities, to operate (loading/discharging) on the quaysides.

Our base in Sandnessjøen has excellent facilities for supporting drilling operations, and the multi-skilled team take pride in being flexible and focussing on quality and support.

The Sandnessjøen base consists of several storage buildings and one receipt and despatch storage area, including a packing area for containers. The building is constructed with a special roof for weather protection, and modern indoor storage areas in addition to a new building for storage of chemicals.
