Stena Oil has signed an agreement to develop a new marine fuel terminal in the Port of Frederikshavn, Denmark, which is set to be the largest of its kind in Scandinavia with a capacity of 75,000 cubic metres.

The facility is to be built in a new outer part of the harbour where Stena Oil will have exclusive access to a 300 metre-long quayside with a draft of 14 metres, which means that large vessels will be able to load and discharge at the same time.

"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," Stena Oil explained.

Slops collection and oil spill response

Several services are to be carried out simultaneously at the new terminal, thus reducing transportation and turnaround times.

One of the key uses of the facility will be to collect slops, where a vessel supplying bunker fuel to ships can to be used to carry slops back to the terminal and they can subsequently be pumped into tanks and cleaned via an environmentally sound process.

The handling of slops is to be carried out in collaboration with Stena Oil's sister company, Stena Recycling A/S.

The new terminal will also provide a base for Stena Oil's European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) work. Under this collaboration, Stena Oil provides rapid response ships and equipment for oil spill cleaning in Scandinavian waters.

With equipment in Frederikshavn, Stena Oil expects to be able to respond more quickly to oil spills in the busy waters of Skagerrak.

"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. In combination with our Gothenburg terminal, we will have the capability to serve our customers even better," commented Jonas Persson, Managing Director of Stena Oil.
