Stena Oil has signed an agreement to develop a new marine fuel terminal in the
Port of Frederikshavn, Denmark that will be fully adapted for the new Sulphur
oil terminal will be the largest of its kind in Scandinavia, Stena Oil said,
with a capacity of 75,000 cubic metres. It will be built in a new, outer part
of the harbor and will have a 300 meter- long quayside with 14 meters draft,
enabling large vessels to load and discharge at the same time.
We will create a state-of-the-art terminal that can handle all fuel
types that meet the IMO’s global sulphur directive, which comes into
effect in 2020. In combination with our Gothenburg terminal, we will
have the capability to serve our customers even better. We are also
investing in a new bunkering vessel,” says Jonas Persson, Managing Director of
“This will significantly increase efficiency. It will make us more
flexible and means that we can supply fuel to ships in the Skagerrak and
Kattegatt more quickly. The location also means that our bunkering vessels will
travel shorter distances, which will reduce fuel consumption and emissions for
every delivery we make.”
terminal will also provide slops collecting services, as the boat that supplies
fuel can carry slops back to the terminal where they are pumped into tanks and
cleaned in an environmentally sound process. Handling slops is carried out in
collaboration with Stena Oil’s sister company, Stena Recycling A/S, the company
terminal will also provide a base for Stena Oil’s European Maritime Safety
Agency (EMSA) work, allowing the company to respond more quickly to oil spills
in the busy waters of Skagerrak.
The Port of
Frederikshavn, which will soon open the first part of its expansion program,
has announced a new contract for stage two. The stage 2 extension will be
completed in early 2019, meaning that the Port of Frederikshavn will have a
total area of 950,000 square meters.
are proud that Stena Oil is going to build its new terminal in Frederikshavn.
It is an important addition to all the marine business we conduct here. The
agreements that we have signed for the port’s development mean that we have
reached our strategic goals for 2021 in both commercial and financial terms. We
have leased out all the sites for Stages 1 and 2, which includes 400 meters of
quay and dredging, with 11 to 14 meters draft. This means that we will have an
additional 150,000 square meter area,” Mikkel Seedorff Sørensen, Managing
Director of the Port of Frederikshavn, said.
