Marine Fuels expand with Södertälje as base

From the 1st of January 2017, Neste Oil will begin to distribute low-sulfur ship fuel in Sweden, from the Fuel Terminal at Port of Södertälje. Neste Oil’s first customers will be from the Greater Stockholm region but will distribute low-sulfur fuel to other Swedish east coast ports on demand.

Neste Oil is one of the world's leading producer of renewable diesel and also creates renewable solutions for the aviation and plastics industry. Vessels operating in the Baltic, North Sea and English Channel can now have sulfur emissions of no more than 0.1 percent. Neste Oil offers two low-sulfur fuels, Neste MDO DMB and Neste RMB, fuels that satisfy this requirement. Fuel is distributed from the terminal at Port of Södertälje by tanker.

– Södertälje has an excellent strategic location for our bunkering operations on the Swedish east coast, says Jacob Granqvist, Neste Marine Fuels and Services. We see a huge potential in the area and this is a long term strategic investment. We are very happy for the positive attitude and the support from the Port of Södertälje. At the moment, we are exploring to see how together we can expand the range of services for our customers and how we can develop Sodertalje as an attractive alternative for bunkering.

While the market area widens in Sweden Neste Oil has its eye on new future markets in Northern Europe.

– Our ship fuels are a good solution in reducing sulfur emissions due to more stringent regulations, concludes Jacob. It doesn’t require any investments or changes to ships in order to use these fuels.

– For quite some time we have noticed an increased demand for fuel storage capacity, says Per Fredman, sales manager at Port of Södertälje. We are very pleased that such an important market actor as Neste Oil has chosen our port.
