New oil terminal for Frederikshavn

May 10 2019

Bladt Industries and Port of Frederikshavn have signed a three-digit million Danish kroner contract to build a new oil terminal at Frederikshavn.

The new terminal will be constructed on the new part of the port.


As a turnkey project, Bladt will be responsible for everything from design and construction to commissioning the port's new terminal, including installations, de-watering, concrete, tanks, pipes, electricity, control, and automation work.


"We have, in co-operation 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. We are looking forward to start the construction stage and not least the commissioning of the terminal by the end of 2020," said Mikkel Seedorff Sørensen, Port of Frederikshavn CEO.


The new oil terminal will consist of 11 storage tanks and with a total capacity of 74.400 cu m for products and wastewater, the plant will be Scandinavia's largest. In addition, loading facilities, a pumping station, and a pipeline system will be established for import, and export of both marine diesel and heavy fuel oil, central heating systems, and staff facilities. Planning work has already started.


"We are pleased with the agreement we have made with Port of Frederikshavn. We have always had good co-operative relations with the port, and we are absolutely certain that the good co-operation will continue in this project," added Kim Bringsjord, Senior Vice President, Bladt Industries.


The terminal will be ready for operation by the end of 2020, when it will be leased to and operated by Stena Oil.


"We are delighted that the Port of Frederikshavn has closed a turnkey construction deal with such a well reputed company as Bladt Industries. This new state of the art bunker terminal is a key component in our preparation for the post IMO 2020 market," said Jonas Persson, Stena Oil managing director.
