The new facility at Skaw, Denmark, is a natural extension to Peninsula’s existing physical supply hubs across the Mediterranean and in Antwerp, Rotterdam, Amsterdam
Peninsula global head of sales Victor Morales commented, “a significant proportion of Peninsula’s existing customer base lift bunkers in Skaw. With our reputation for customer focus and operational excellence, we anticipate strong demand in the region and look forward to adding genuine value to our clients.”
Peninsula already boasts strong relationships with regional cargo suppliers and energy majors in the region.
“Launching Skaw enables Peninsula to further strengthen these supply relationships and to offer increased flexibility and optionality to customers looking to refuel in northern Europe. Strategically and operationally we see the move as a good fit for our global physical portfolio” added Peninsula global head of supply & trading Alex Lyra.
Peninsula will initially operate two supply tankers in Skaw with a combined capacity of around 10,000 tonnes.
Operations will be supported from storage in Gothenburg. Peninsular will supply ISO 8217-compliant HSFO, VLSFO and LSGO from February 2021.
Peninsula chief executive John A Bassadone added “As we continue to navigate the global pandemic and its impact, it is our duty as a leading global supplier to support our customers where they need us and where we feel that we can provide a differentiated service.”
“Expanding our regional supply network into Skaw is a great example of Peninsula seeking and finding client solutions which help them execute their bunker procurement strategy. 2021 will see further expansion for Peninsula, but we are very proud to enter Skaw and to bring our expertise to this exciting new market.”
