Sikuki Nuuk Harbor A / S
The port of Nuuk is Greenland's largest port and plays a central role in freight transport to, from and in Greenland. However, for several years, Nuuk Harbor has met capacity constraints that have made it relevant to expand the port.
Sikuki Nuuk Harbor A / S was founded on 23 December 2013 with the purpose of constructing, owning, operating and developing port areas and activities related to port operations in Nuuk.
Sikuki has owned and operated the port areas in Nuuk since July 1, 2016, and with the inauguration of the new container terminal, which is leased to the Royal Arctic Line, another milestone is reached.
Container transport to and from Greenland is important for Greenland's society in terms of supplies and exports.
With the new terminal, Royal Arctic Line has a modern and flexible framework to support their strategy to make it easier to trade with Greenland. Consequently, the container terminal will play an important role in future infrastructure throughout Greenland.
At the same time, the entire port's capacity and flexibility significantly improve the benefit of all users when the old container areas can be used for new purposes.
