A ship loaded with precious cargo

This was not just any old ship – with a cargo capacity of 180,000 cubic metres, it is the biggest oil tanker to have visited Nynäshamn in 30 years.

Nynas depends on a wide-ranging distribution process for crude oil, oil components and finished goods. Thanks to a global network of depots, vessels and road tankers, it is possible to meet the market’s stringent requirements of safety, service and cost-effectiveness.

The crude oil that is used to manufacture bitumen, tyre and transformer oils and many other special products at Nynas refineries is delivered by tanker from different parts of the world. Early one morning at the end of August, one such oil tanker approached Nynäshamn after almost a month at sea.

The 274 m long, 48 m wide vessel was guided into the quayside at the refinery with the aid of three tugboats. But this was not just any old ship – with a cargo capacity of 180,000 cubic metres, it is the biggest oil tanker to have visited Nynäshamn in 30 years.
