The port of Narvik (Port Code: NONVK) is ice-free and well protected from the weather. Located some 55 kilometers from the Norwegian Sea on the Ofotfjorden inlet, it is also protected from wind and weather. Today, the Port of Narvik is an intermodal port with connections by sea, road, and rail to inland Norway and Sweden. It is Norway’s biggest dry-bulk transit port. The Port of Narvik has a modern infrastructure that can handle all kinds and sizes of vessels, and its deep-water quay is not limited in the draft it can accommodate. The Port of Narvik has the only container gantry crane in northern Norway.
The port consists of three waterfront sections: LKAB bulk port, central port area with piers and deep-water harbor at Fagernes with intermodal facilities. Approximately 16,000,000 tonnes (16,000,000 long tons; 18,000,000 short tons) of cargo are annually shipped from the ports of Narvik. By 2015, the port had handled 1.1 billion tonnes of ore. Most of this iron ore. In 2015 the port installed a pier with 18 suction cups to moor ships, expected to save 40 minutes of mooring time. Each cup is 2x2 meters. Narvik offered a port which is ice-free thanks to the warm Gulf Stream, and is naturally large, allowing boats of virtually any size to anchor, up to 208 metres (682 ft) long and 27 metres (89 ft) deep.
Port Authorities have initiated an expansion of the container area of approximately 45,000 square metres (11 acres), which is more than twice what Norways largest terminal in Oslo today handles. In 2005, the port of Narvik got status as Motorways of the Sea in the EU-system. In Norway, Oslo is the only city which has this status in addition to the town of Narvik.
