New Wilhelmsen Ships Service office opens in Russian Baltic port
Feb. 3, 2010 - Wilhelmsen Ships Service has opened an office on the port of Primorsk on the Russian Baltic Sea. The company started providing its broad range of ships agency services there in December 2009, supplying first MT Atalandi, which sailed on 16 December, and then MT Atlas Voyager, which sailed on 20 December. Since then Wilhelmsen Ships Service has consistently provided to other vessels visiting the port.
Primorsk Oil terminal is the final point of the Baltic Pipeline System operated by the state entity Transneft. At present, up to 65 million tons of crude oil are shipped out of the port annually, with oil delivered from the Timano-Pechorskoye oil field as well as from various fields of West Siberia and the Urals.
"We have been covering operations in this port for some time from our St Petersburg base," said James Parsons, Area Director Eastern Europe. "However, with increasing business in this area, we believe it is essential to be placed in a position where we can give the level of service that our customers demand in this important port."
