Odense Harbour (Port Code:DKODE) is the port of Odense, Denmark. Founded in 1803 (219 years ago), Denmark's only canal harbour and is the country's seventh largest commercial port in terms of turnover. It consists primarily of Inner Harbour, at the end of Odense Canal, and Odense Steel Terminal of Munkebo, which is located adjacent to the Odense Steel Shipyard. The port has a land area of approximately 4,000,000 square metres (43,000,000 sq ft) and a water area of almost 1,000,000 square metres (11,000,000 sq ft). Its industrial importance has declined since the 1960s, but a transformation is underway, including new residential and small business areas. In 2012, Port of Odense purchased the site of the former Odense Steel Shipyard which had been Denmark's second-largest shipbuilding facility. Lindø Industrial Park is now being developed on the site with an emphasis on companies working in the off-shore sector.
The Port of Odense comprises two main harbours, the commercial harbour (Odense Erhvervshavn) in the city area and the industrial harbour (Odense Ervervshavn) at Lindø near Munkebo to the north.
