The Port of Tulcea is one of the largest Romanian river ports. Located in the city of Tulcea on the Danube river, the port is an important source of revenue for the city because many large international companies have established there.[1]

The shipbuilding industry is a key activity of the port and Norwegian company STX Europe (formerly Aker Yards) is the most important enterprise established there.
