The Port of Kalundborg is Denmark’s biggest port for grain export, and with a water depth of 15 metres it is Zealand’s only deep water port. The port has a good location immediately next to the T route, the deep water route connecting the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. Right now, we are expanding the port area with the New West Port, which is a new port area of 330,000 square metres with a 500 meters long quay and with a water depth of 15 metres.
The Port of Kalundborg is a self-governing public port, led by a seven member board of directors, of which five are from the municipal council. The daily leadership is under the direction of the port director. Economically, the port functions as an independent economic and legal entity without public subsidies. Profits are invested in maintenance of infrastructure and development of port facilities.
The mission of the Port of Kalundborg is:
- To be the local port for West Zealand’s industry
- To be a regional port for all of Zealand, as we are a unique deep water facility, with water depths of as much as 15 m.
- To continue the development as a gateway to Denmark
- To be a potential location for larger port based industries
- To maintain our position as one of Zealand’s leading ports, with the intention of providing the population and industry access to effective maritime transportation at the right price.
