Strandfaraskip Landsins (short: SSL , translation roughly: Landesküstenschifffahrt , often called Strandferðslan for short ) is the state regional transport company of the Faroe Islands based in Tvøroyri . It operates local public transport with ferries between the islands and with buses on the islands. The company still operates 5 trucks and other ship handling equipment in the ports of Tórshavn , Tvøroyri (Krambatangi ferry port) and Klaksvík . From 1984 to 1994 regional liner services were carried out with helicopters .
The Ternan was before operating the Northern Isles Tunnel and Vágartunnels for the ferry services between Eysturoy and Borðoy and between Streymoy and Vágar used. It now operates the busy route from Tórshavn to Nólsoy . Since the Ternan is a car ferry, it is now possible to take a car with you to the island - which, however, does not make sense due to the lack of adequate roads. Locals use the opportunity to use it to transport their purchases. A new ferry is already being planned for the Ternan , which is technically no longer in the best condition, also with car transport.
The ferry Dúgvan , which was also used between Eysturoy and Borðoy and was made obsolete by the North Island Tunnel, was decommissioned in 2006 and sold to Cape Verde . Instead, a bus is now driving there. Other former SSL ferries were the Másin (scrapped in 2012) and the Tróndur (sold to private customers, Faroese Coast Guard rescue ship , now scrapped). Since April 2, 2019, the Spógvin ( Whimbrel ), formerly Alpha Pilot , has been serving the Gamlarett - Hestur line in pure passenger traffic, the Teistin continues to run some tours for the transport of vehicles and larger freight.
In addition to the larger ferries mentioned, the Strandfaraskip Landsins timetable also includes the Jósup motorboat , which operates the route between Sørvágur and Mykines and which is owned by Sp / f Mykines in Sørvágur.
The Faroe Islands intercity bus routes (Bygdaleiðir) are operated by SSL.
The helicopter traffic, which was previously operated by Strandfaraskip Landsins, has now been taken over by Atlantic Airways . Strandfaraskip Landsins also owned the forwarding company Farmaleiðir, which has since been privatized and taken over in 2006 by Heri Thomsen, a subsidiary of Eimskip . In 2007 all activities of Heri Thomsen, Farmaleiðir and Faroe Ship (merged with Eimskip in 2004) were merged under the name Faroe Ship.
