Port of Esbjerg Gets New Multiterminal

Danish Port of Esbjerg has received a new multiterminal covering 116,000 m2 in East Port area.

The facility, which was put into operation by transport and logistics company Blue Water Shipping, will be using the port’s two RoRo ramps completed at the end of 2017.

When the terminal is finished in the spring, it will comprise four fully automatic gates and 1,600 m2 of workshops, washing facilities and offices.

“RoRo traffic has always been one of the core business areas for the Port of Esbjerg. The new terminal is ideally located in relation to the two new RoRo ramps, which we completed in the autumn, and traffic will have direct access to the E20 motorway from the terminal area,” Ole Ingrisch, Port Director, said.

The wind turbine industry has introduced RoRo vessels to its logistics concept and is using the existing ramps. The port is also experiencing increased use by existing RoRo customers.

The new terminal has been put into operation earlier than planned because Danish shipping and logistics firm DFDS said that it would be giving up its current areas at the port to use the new terminal instead for its Immingham-Esbjerg route.
