About Us

The Faroe Islands are situated centrally in the Northeast Atlantic and vessels from all neighboring countries fish in waters near the country’s Exclusive Economic Zone, making it logical and convenient for such vessels as well as reefer ships to call at the Port of Fuglafjørður to receive essential services.

Bergfrost is a leading cold storage facility which not merely fulfils all requirements associated with a modern cold store — we are one of the largest in the entire Nordic Seas region and offer a service that is second to none.

Fuglafjørður is a major business hub in the Faroe Islands with excellent connections to the country’s other major ports.

The Bergfrost underground cold store is located inside a tunnel system at the foot of the mountain Borgin that towers above the main harbor area, right between the Pelagos freezing plant and the Havsbrún fishmeal, fish oil and feed factory, and near several other key service providers for vessels calling at the port, including fishing gear, fuel, supplies and mechanical repairs, for example.

Since opening for business in 1996, the Bergfrost facility has undergone several phases of development and extension. Today Bergfrost has a cold storage capacity of more than 25,000 tonnes and is constantly looking for ways to grow to keep up with demand.
