Deutsch: Naturhafen / Português: Abra / Français: Havre

A harbor or harbour, or haven, is a body of water where ships, boats, and barges can seek shelter from stormy weather, or else are stored for future use. Harbors can be natural or artificial. An artificial harbor has deliberately constructed breakwaters, sea walls, or jettys, or otherwise, they could have been constructed by dredging, and these require maintenance by further periodic dredging.

In an industrial or industry context, a "harbor" refers to a place where ships, boats, and other watercraft can dock and load or unload cargo. A harbor typically includes facilities for loading and unloading cargo, as well as storage and handling areas. Some common examples of harbors in an industrial or industry context include:

  1. Container ports: These are specialized harbors designed to handle the loading and unloading of large containers, which are used to transport goods by sea.

  2. Oil terminals: These are harbors used for the transfer of oil, often involving large storage tanks and pipelines.

  3. Dry docks: These are harbors used for maintenance and repair of ships and boats, typically involving cranes and other equipment.

  4. Fishing harbors: These are harbors designed for the use of commercial fishing vessels, often including facilities for processing and storing fish.

  5. Military harbors: These are harbors used by military forces for the maintenance, repair, and support of their vessels.

These are just a few examples of the types of harbors that can exist in an industrial or industry context. The specific facilities and services offered by a harbor will depend on its intended use.
