In 1901 the owners of the whaling station in Norðdepli, decided to build a new station in Selvík. During the spring of 1902 the Norwegian cargo ship "Viking", and the whaling boat Norddeble came with equipment and material and already in June 1902 whaling activity started from the station.
The station got a brand new whaling boat with the name Selvik in 1904.
The station closed down already in 1912.
