Under Mabanaft’s ownership, the terminal will continue to serve its purpose as critical energy distribution infrastructure in the Copenhagen region, handling liquid fuels for road transport and the marine and aviation industries. The terminal has a storage capacity of 461,652 cbm and is strategically located at Prøvestenen island in the city of Copenhagen.
The acquisition is in line with the Mabanaft Group strategy. Mabanaft proactively engages in the energy transition and offers its customers a broad and flexible range of products, serving the conventional market, and at the same time, playing an active role in the field of innovative low carbon fuel solutions. By repurposing existing core assets and capabilities Mabanaft can meet its customers’ changing needs, while collectively taking on the challenges of the energy transition. In Copenhagen, Mabanaft will explore additional product streams and service offerings for low carbon fuels such as sustainable aviation fuel, advanced biofuels and hydrogen.
“We want to help our customers decarbonise and our best way to do this is by leveraging our core strengths of sourcing, storing, handling and distributing liquid fuels. This terminal adds another key location to our network and will enable us to expand our footprint in Europe and help us provide high-quality liquid fuel products to our customers in the region, while maintaining the highest safety and environmental standards”, says Mabanaft CEO, Jon Perkins.
“Oiltanking has been operating in Copenhagen for over 50 years and we are proud of the contribution we have made to the energy supply chain in the region. We thank our employees and customers for their support during our tenure”, says Bas Verkooijen, CEO of Oiltanking GmbH. “We are delighted to have reached an agreement with our affiliate company Mabanaft and are glad to see that the terminal and its loyal and dedicated team continue their journey as part of the existing terminal network within the Mabanaft Group”, he continues.
