Originally published in HR E-Zine 1/2017 on page 17."Hirtshals is the northernmost port on the west coast of the European mainland. The service industry at our port is gathered within a cluster of smaller specialized companies, covering all kinds of competences within the blue industry. And so the first one, MarineShaft, is a fast-growing maritime company, highly specialized in truing-up vessel and rudder shafts. The second one, Hirtshals El-Motor Service, repairs larger generators, including vacuum-proofing of spool in the largest VPI installation in Denmark. The next one, Hirtshals Yard, has introduced a new business area, as the company has set off with installations of ballast water treatment equipment on-board vessels, while MarineService has kicked off laser welding. The main markets for the service industry in Hirtshals are the North Atlantic, Scotland, Norway, and naturally the domestic Danish one."
