Maritime events

The Port of Narvik has preparedness related to maritime incidents in Narvik harbour. Such inquiries may, for example, be linked to:

  • Collisions

With the substantial and also “heavy” traffic in Narvik harbour we will, in periods where the weather forecast and weather observations indicate it, increase our vigilance related to the activity in the harbour and the fairway.
