Blue Water opens new office in Thyboron
Blue Water Shipping has opened a new office in Denmark in the Port of Thyboron. “In recent years, we have been involved in various projects. Seeing a future great potential, we have decided to open an office here together with our local partner, Kynde & Toft”, says Søren Stougaard from Blue Water’s port service division.
Since its establishment in 1958, Kynde & Toft has been an active part of the technical development of the fishing industry. Over the past 30 years, they have developed and manufactured hydraulic components and equipment. Also, minor and major steel constructions, extension of vessels and repair of all forms of construction machinery are part of their product range.
Kynde & Toft employs 72 people and is based in Thyboron at a 4,000 m2 area comprising workshops, warehouse and office facilities. The company is co-owner of the Thyboron Floating Dock and has two mobile cranes at disposal.
“Over the years, we have developed our business, and this new partnership with Blue Water marks another step forward. We see great potential in the cooperation benefitting our two companies – as well as new and existing clients and partners”, says managing director Olaf Vinther Jensen of Kynde & Toft.
Present in all Danish ports
Thyboron Port is one of the three most important fishing ports in Denmark. However, unlike other fishing ports, Thyboron is atypical because of its large flow of cargo. In the past ten years, the port has developed from being a pure fishing port to becoming the bulk cargo port for Central and West Jutland. Thanks to its unique location on the North Sea coast relatively close to Industrial Denmark combined with ideal water depth, excellent quay and warehousing facilities, Thyboron Port now handles around 1.5 million tonnes of bulk cargo annually. The port also holds an interesting position for future offshore wind projects.
“Having strong local partners is important for Blue Water – also in Thyboron. In this new cooperation, we complement each other brilliantly. Kynde & Toft has an extensive business and roots in the region which we supplement with our comprehensive network and expertise. These factors enable us to provide additional services to existing clients, and we also wish to offer our service to new clients”, says Stougaard.
