Port of Frederikshavn Contracts Bladt Industries for New Oil Terminal
Denmark’s Port of Frederikshavn has entered into an agreement with steel contractor Bladt Industries for the construction of a new IMO 2020-ready oil terminal.
Developed as part of a turnkey project under which Bladt Industries will be responsible for the design, construction and commissioning, the oil terminal will be built on the new part of the port in Frederikshavn.
The facility will consist of 11 storage tanks and with a total capacity of 74,400 m3 for maritime products and wastewater, the plant will be Scandinavia’s largest.
In addition, loading facilities, pumping station, and pipeline system will be established for import and export of both marine diesel and heavy fuel, central heating systems, and staff facilities.
“We have, in cooperation with Stena Oil, been in close negotiation with Bladt Industries and we are pleased to have reached an agreement with Bladt for the construction of the new terminal,” Mikkel Seedorff Sørensen, Port of Frederiskhavn CEO, commented.
“We are looking forward to start the construction stage and not least the commissioning of the terminal by the end of 2020.”
The planning work has already commenced, and during the summer of 2019 Bladt will be visible at the harbor in Frederikshavn.
The terminal will be finished and ready for operation by the end of 2020, where it will be rented and operated by Stena Oil.
“This new … bunker terminal is a key component in our preparation for the post IMO 2020 market,” Jonas Persson, Managing Director of Stena Oil, said
