Oil products are constantly being transported over long distances to reach consumers. CMP received two such deliveries from different corners of the world
It was busy at Prøvestenen in late July when two oil tankers arrived at CMP’s liquid bulk terminal from New York and Bahrain respectively. On 26 July, Sea Treasure docked with 38,000 tonnes of diesel fuel from New York, and in the evening of 28 July, Alpine Confidence arrived from Sitrah in Bahrein, via Port Said, to unload 65,000 tonnes of jet fuel.
”Alpine Confidence is one of the largest oil tankers we get here, with a dead weight of 107,600 tonnes. It required the assistance of three tugs to enter berth 843,” says Ingrid Ivarsson, Ship Agent at Maersk Broker, the agent for both ships.
Alpine Confidence is 243 metres long and 42 metres wide, and has a draught of 10.9 metres. It was built in 2010, and is registered in Singapore.
Immediately prior to this, the berth at Prøvestenen was occupied by Seatreasure, an even newer oil tanker of 50,000 tonnes dead weight, with a load of diesel fuel. The ship is 143 metres long and 32 metres wide. It was launched in 2013, and is registered in Malta.
CMP has the largest liquid bulk terminal in the Öresund region, with a trade volume of about 7 million tonnes in Copenhagen and Malmö, and with facilities to receive or store all kinds of oil products for the local market or for transit, to the Baltic countries for example. The terminal also supplies jet fuel to Copenhagen Airport.
