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. With a location at West Zealand right next to the Great Belt, the port has a strategically good location close to the T roue, the deep water route that connects the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. We have expanded the port area with the New West Port, which is a new port area of 330,000 square metres with a 500 metres long quay and 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.
