Scandinavia bunkering firm Stena Oil has signed an agreement to build a 75,000 cubic metre (m3) capacity marine fuel terminal in the Port of Frederikshavn that is expected to be the largest of its kind in Denmark.
“We are delighted to be developing our business in Frederikshavn. 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,” says Jonas Persson, Managing Director of Stena Oil.
“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. We are well prepared to meet changing customer needs and the 2020 fuel requirements.”
According to Stena Oil, the new terminal will be built in a new, outer part of the harbor where Stena Oil will have exclusive access to a 300 meter-long quayside with 14 meters draft enabling large vessels to load and discharge at the same time.
“This will significantly increase efficiency,” explains Persson.
“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.”
In addition to being a marine fuel terminal, the facility will also be used for slop collection out in collaboration with Stena Oil’s sister company, Stena Recycling A/S.
It will also provide a base for Stena Oil's EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency) work.
“Overall, the new terminal will be a very positive development for us and our customers,” says Persson.
“Frederikshavn is an ideal location for warehousing and will improve logistics at Northern Europe's leading bunkering site for international shipping.
“We are well prepared to meet the reduced sulphur requirements for marine fuel with rapid service and efficient logistics solutions.
“With exclusive access to 300 meters of quayside and full flexibility to handle all grades of marine fuel – as well as slops and sludge – Stena Oil will have a cost-effective terminal with high safety standards.”
Stena Oil Stena Oil will lease a 38,000 square meter quayside site from the Port of Frederikshavn to build the marine terminal, but did not specify when the terminal will be operational.
