Liquid bulk cargo
Long tradition of handling oil and chemicals
Customer-specific liquid bulk cargo solutions
Efficient handling of liquid bulk cargo is best achieved with customer-specific solutions in an optimised infrastructure. At the Port of Thyboron, we work closely with our customers and are happy to establish infrastructure specially designed to meet customer needs. Two good examples of this easy and efficient handling of liquid bulk cargo are given below.
Liquid bulk cargo requires special facilities for simple and safe handling. The Port of Thyboron began to service chemicals in the 1990s, when a direct pipeline to the nearby Cheminova chemical company was laid – now the US-owned FMC. FMC is still using the port for deliveries of caustic soda, also known as lye.
There are great advantages in streamlining the handling of bunker oil for the many vessels that use the Port of Thyboron. Ensuring simple unloading for bunker vessels with large tank capacity makes a big difference. Flexible new facilities to this end have just been established on the new Oliekaj.Oliekaj
When liquid biomass has to be trucked directly from ships to biogas plants around Denmark, quays with large adjoining land areas mean safe driving and convenience for drivers. The freight handling sites in Sydhavnen are far from the town centre, allowing undisrupted work with direct access from the quay to the main road.
