|Part of Haakonsvern|
|Tromsø, Troms, Norway|
|Type||Auxiliary military base|
|Controlled by||Royal Norwegian Navy|
The base is small compared to its counter, Haakonsvern in Bergen. It lost its status as an orlogsstasjon in 2002. It is now a subordinate unit of Haakonsvern and no units are permanently stationed there. A consequence of the restructuring of the Royal Norwegian Navy is that the base may be shut down in the near future.
It's now been reported that Olavsvern is for sale for 105 million Norwegian kroner (17.5 million USD). NATO has said that the Norwegian government can sell the base as neither of them have a need for the base.
