It's always exciting when Thorverk is getting ready for Asco harvesting season. The crisp spring light (yet still icy cold) shows snowy mountains but ready harvesters and pretty newly repared and painted service ships.

Overview of the years 2023 and 2024

1 of 2

The year 2023 was one of the best years at Thorverk. Fortunately, we achieved our main objective: neither employees nor sub-contractors were injured, and no accidents occurred. That is in line with the motto: Safety first. Much effort is put into continuous training and active participation in preventive safety issues.

We are grateful to the landowners around Breiðafjörður who have negotiated contracts for seaweed harvesting. With contracts in hand the stability, and predictability of operation is guaranteed. With such stability we can offer 25 people continuous work. About Total 16,000 tons were harvested in 2023, a moderate amount.

Here is March

As usual in Iceland March is dedicated to men's health, male cancer, healthy living, growing beard.. 

 

This year the health care tries to reach out with a preventive call and urge men to get on the move and strenghten their health. As a reminder Thorverk bought the annual pair of socks for all!  - There is a pun in the title útkall- it can be interpreted as callout or carl (male) out. 


Port is getting closer to ready

This winter has been rather mild in terms of stormy winter weather. Therefore it has been possible to keep up some work at the harbour. The last tasks will be to fill up the new parts at the tip of the bridge toe and lastly to lay asphalt on top.

The road No60 West of Reykholar towards Patreksfjordur has not been upgraded for several decades. But now long strips have been renovated. A new bridge is to be found crossing Þorskafjordur. A new road has been laid down along the beach towards Djúpifjörður and there is still a nother part foreseen that will still shorten the way West and to Isafjörður.

Contractors are still working on the repair and upgrade of the harbor at Reykhólar. Not many venture out onto the dock to avoid being hit by the contractor's large vehicles and equipment. But our own Unnsteinn Birgisson is particularly good at making drone photos of the activity area.
