Wibax has been granted an environmental permit for its terminal in Malmö. It means that we can store and handle chemical products. - We are very happy about this, says Wibax Group CEO Jonas Wiklund. It is an important step for our operations in the Öresund region and we are among other things planning for increased deliveries of sustainable products such as bio-oils.
The Malmö terminal is strategically situated for deliveries to both the most southern areas of Sweden and Denmark and for imports of various products from other parts of Europe.
– This will be our hub in the growing Öresund region, which actually accounts for approximately a quarter of Sweden’s and Denmark’s total GDP, Jonas goes on.
Even if we are a small player at present, we can already see indications that the market appreciates our “tank-to-tank” concept and I believe we have good possibilities to expand.
Wibax has ample terminal space with an area of approximately 17,000 square metres and has an existing cistern park with a storage capacity totalling 13,500 cubic metres and storage areas for packaged products.
Conversions and expansion
– We’re now going to convert and probably also expand our storage capacity. First and foremost we see an increased demand for various kinds of bio-products, which is very positive for both the environment and our business. Malmö is also an important location for our other chemical products. Increased volume also means that we will be employing more people in the long term and that we can invest in new tankers for future deliveries.
Wibax has a delivery radius of about 300 km around each terminal and together with its terminals in Norrköping, Skutskär and Uddevalla covers the whole of southern Sweden.
