Esbjerg seeks operator for combi terminal

September 25 - The Port of Esbjerg is inviting parties from the private sector to express their interest in running and developing its new combi terminal.

The combi terminal, which consists of two rail tracks and covers a total area of 48,000 sq m, connects the Port of Esbjerg with the rail network. It is primarily expected to handle rail freight between the Port of Esbjerg, eastern Denmark and southern Sweden, but also to provide a feeder service to the terminals in Padborg and Taulov. The terminal is expected to have sufficient capacity to handle up to three trains a day on the two terminal tracks.

The tender includes the development and operation of the terminal from the first quarter of 2015.

Expressions of Interest must be registered on by October 6, 2014. Any questions about the tender or the tender process can be sent via email to

Ole Ingrisch, the port of Esbjerg's port director confirms that he believes the terminal could be used for oversized cargoes such as wind turbine components.
