Bladt Industries and Port of Frederikshavn have reached an agreement for the construction of a new oil terminal but in the new part of the port.
As previously reported, the new terminal will be operated by Stena Oil and is in direct response to the IMO 2020 sulphur fuel cap.
Under the multi million DKK contract, Bladt will deliver everything from design and construction to commissioning the port's new terminal, including installations, dewatering, concrete, tanks, pipeline, electricity, control and automation work.
It will comprise 11 storage tanks with a total capacity of 74,400 m3 for maritime products and wastewater. It will be Scandinavia's largest plant. In addition, loading facilities, pumping stations, and pipeline systems will be established for import and export of both marine diesel and heavy fuel, central heating systems, and staff facilities.
Mikkel Seedorff Sørensen, CEO at the Port of Frederiskhavn, says: '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. We are pleased to sign with Bladt Industries, due to their many years of experience within the construction of terminals. We are looking forward to start the construction stage and not least the commissioning of the terminal by the end of 2020.'
Planning work has already started, and the terminal will be finished and ready for operation by the end of 2020. Jonas Persson, managing director of Stena Oil, says: '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.'
