Unloading at Egersund harbour
Egersund harbour has ample space with a total length of about 4500 meters, and the depth is from six to nine meters. This also includes three Ro-Ro docks. Unique about the port is that it does not have a tidal difference and that it is free from ice all year round. The entry distance from the sea to the port is short and we also have a sheltered anchorage. Egersund has good road and rail connections and is strategically well located.

Waste management from ships
In accordance with the Pollution Control Regulations, Eigersund Havnevesen has established a reception system for waste and cargo residues from ships.
Eigersund Havnevesen can arrange contact with a company that receives oil waste, cargo residues and sewage from ships. In order for these waste fragments to be received, the vessel must have complied with the reporting obligation described in section 7. The fees for oil waste, cargo residues and sewage are calculated in each case on the basis of the type and quantity delivered and delivery time. The fee is charged by the waste company.
Garbage can be delivered to 3 waste containers, which are located in the port. Hazardous waste can only be delivered to special reception stations.
Fee for waste is to be paid by all vessels docking at public quays, regardless of whether waste is delivered from the ship to the waste disposal. Recreational boats that do not pay harbor fees are excluded from the scheme and are not obliged to pay the fee. Fee for garbage is calculated on the basis of the number of persons the ship is allowed to transport (crew members plus passengers) or on the basis of the gross tonnage of the ship.
