Conservation project

The whaling stations contributed to advancing the Faroese industry. In other words, the whaling industry was a matter of social importance up until the 1960's.

Since spring 2010, Faroese National Heritage has worked on the station by cleaning and renovating the station as well as collecting tools and equipment from the station to preserve for the future. The whaling station við Áir will become a museum. 

The whaling station is of fascinating value both historically and natural historically, not only for Sundalagið, where there were three whaling stations, but for the entire Faroe Islands.

The project is based on a temporary report that was handed over to the Ministry of Culture in 2007.
