Bunkering is a business area by which the port of Skagen expects significant growth.
With northern Europe's best maritime location, Skagen has an ideal placement as basis port for bunkering of ships. Several businesses which sell marine fuel already have tank facilities at the port. They service both the ships which enter the port and many of the thousands of ships which pass close to Skagen every year.
During the fall 2014 the port of Skagen chose the forging and ingeneering company, Skanda A/S as builder in order to establish a tank terminal for bunkering oil. The tank terminal is the largest which has been built in Denmark during the past 20 years.
The terminal is established by the port of Skagen, but is rented and and managed by the bunkering business Monjasa A/S. When the terminal is put into operation at the end of 2015, it will be a proof of the significant growth which the port of Skagen expects within the business area.
