The cove was roughly surveyed by the Norwegian whaling captain Hans Borge in 1913-14, and was named "Borge Havna" on a map of that period by Petter Sorlle. The name of Borge was later transferred to the bay of which this cove forms a small part. The cove was resurveyed by DI personnel in 1927 and renamed Factory Cove, because the ruins of the whaling factory built in 1920-21 by the Tonsberg Hvalfangeri stand on its SE shore.
