New depot in Denmark

Due to the continued development of the harbour area in Køge, about 40 km south of Copenhagen, the current Nynas depot located there will have to close down.

“We have been looking for an alternative for many years, and we are happy to now confirm that we will have a totally new depot in Køge operational by the beginning of 2019,” says Mikkel Caprani, Managing Director of Nynas A/S.

The new depot includes four tanks with a total storage capacity of 12 000 m3. Loading platforms, a service building and offices will also be built. Nynas will start moving into the facility at the end of 2018.

“Through the years we have achieved a strong position in the Danish market, and this sends a clear signal to our customers that we are dedicated to remaining a reliable, leading bitumen supplier on this market,” concludes Mikkel Caprani.

To guarantee the bridge's functionality and extend its useful life, extensive maintenance work has been under way since 2019, the third and final stage being completed this summer.
