Arctic Services, opened in February 2013, is an association between number of companies and institutions in the Eyjafjörður area, central North Iceland. Opening of Arctic shipping routes and the expansion of mining and possible oil production in the arctic region are the main prerequisites for the founding of Arctic Services.
The association’s participants possess expertise and experience relevant to construction projects in the Arctic, such as companies that conduct industrial and technical services, research, engineering and aviation, as well as public utilities in the area.
