Business locations

Since the privatization of the port of Den Helder, we have in addition to our port grounds, a number of very interesting areas in our management that still offer sufficient space for the development of new business activities.

The ideal pit-stop harbour for all offshore activities


Port of Den Helder is the pit stop port for logistics services for offshore maintenance and supply activities at (the southern part of) the North Sea. Port of Den Helder has been the most important offshore operations and maintenance hub for over 40 years. This success is due to its high quality and fast service, convenient location and short sailing times to offshore installations. Thanks to facilities for fast and efficient turnaround times, the port can offer excellent transport and logistical support in the North Sea. Port of Den Helder serves approximately 95 per cent of all offshore platforms in the Dutch North Sea waters, in addition to various British platforms. Moreover, Den Helder is ideally situated for sustainable energy projects such as offshore wind.

The port’s logistics infrastructure – including Den Helder Airport, one of the largest helicopter airports in North-West Europe – and its hinterland connections make the port, with comprehensive technical facilities, the home base for a growing number of offshore and energy-related companies.

Den Helder is the historical home port of the Royal Netherlands Navy. The surrounding region has a wide range of high-quality (maritime) suppliers, knowledge institutes and educational institutions.

    A unique harbour in its kind


    The Netherlands in general has a limited number of business locations with quayside access. The growing demand from the market for portbased commercial estates has led to the development and establishment of the inner harbour of Kooyhaven. Linked to the open sea and the seaport of Den Helder, Kooyhaven offers plenty of room for expansion with various plot sizes on offer. The area is located on the Noordholland Canal, opposite the Kooypunt commercial estate. The link with Kooypunt offers a number of advantages: the presence of companies that operate in the same dynamic sector, creating an overall solid position. Kooyhaven harbour serves as an additional commercial estate with plots with dedicated quaysides and quaysides intended for general use.

    Unique characteristics:

    • Immediately adjacent to the Noordholland Canal
    • Multifunctional site
    • Quaysides for both own and general use
    • Close to Den Helder Airport and seaport
    • Excellent access
    • Solid position through proximity of Kooypunt
