Ships in Greenlandic ice.The government of Greenland is building a new port in the capital, Nuuk. The old port is too small for the future activities in Greenlandic waters.

The new port, to be opened in 2014, will be both a container port with storage facilities and a hub-port for service of oil exploration.

The new port will be run by a company owned by four partners, the government of Greenland, the municipality of Sermersooq, the Royal Arctic Line shipping company and the port of Ã…lborg in Denmark.
