The Danish company Stena Terminals A/S, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Swedish based oil company Stena Oil, and the Danish Port of Frederikshavn has end of last week signed the takeover agreement for Stena Oil to take possession of the the new build oil terminal at the port.

The new terminal enables a more efficient infrastructure for Stena Oil and complements the existing operations in Gothenburg, Sweden.

In connection with the establishment in Danish port of Frederikshavn, a newly built bunkering vessel will be deployed in the first quarter of this year which handles various types of fuels, including biofuels and methanol.

One of the customers to be served from Frederikshavn is Stena Line with its ferry routes in Denmark and Kattegat.

Port of Frederikshavn mentions that the terminal is situated on the new areas of the port with 14 metres water depth, which were established in connection with an expansion of the port from 2016-2020.

Jonas Persson, MD of Stena Oil, said that “We have a good collaboration with the Port of Frederikshavn, and we have maintained an ongoing dialogue throughout the entire process. Our focus has consistently been to kickstart our operations in Frederikshavn and we are pleased that we have now achieved that goal.”

“We are moving into a newly built, state-of-the-art terminal with a capacity of 75,000 cubic metres. The geographical location brings us closer to our customers, allowing us to offer an even more efficient delivery with environmental benefits and solutions for future fuels,” he added.

Mikkel Seedorff Sørensen, CEO Port of Frederikshavn, said that “The startup of Stena Oil’s activities is a major milestone for Port of Frederikshavn, and it is with the greatest pleasure that we can now finally welcome Stena Oil to Frederikshavn.”

“It is a result of a close collaboration with Stena Oil that we are now able to hand over the bunker terminal after a construction period marked by challenges, and we look forward to the increasing level of activity, which the bunker operations will bring to Port of Frederikshavn,” he added.
