Marine fuel terminal for Frederikshavn
Scandinavia’s largest marine fuel terminal will be developed at the Danish port of Frederikshavn by Stena Oil.
Port of Frederikshavn Managing Director Mikkel Seedorff Sørensen said the terminal will be built in a new, outer part of the harbour, where Stena Oil will have exclusive access to a 300-metre quayside with a 14-metre draught.
Fully adapted for the new Sulphur Directive 2020, the terminal will have a capacity of 75,000 cubic metres – allowing large vessels to load and discharge at the same time.
Reducing the distances travelled by bunkering vessels, the oil terminal will handle all fuel types.
One of its purposes will be to collect slops (water used to clean oil tanks) and sludge, and to act as a base for Stena Oil’s EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency) work.
Under this collaboration, Stena Oil provides rapid-response ships and equipment for oil spill cleaning in Scandinavian waters.
