Changes on the horizon at Harburg refinery

Nynas has received approval from the European Commission to take over production and responsibility for the base oil plant and associated production units at Shell’s Harburg refinery in Hamburg, Germany. The takeover of the first part of the refinery assets is targeted for January 1, 2014. The new production plant will be a core site for Nynas with an annual production of specialty oils up to 350,000 tons. This represents a 40% increase in the company’s supply capability of naphthenic specialty oils. With the takeover of the Harburg production facilities, Nynas will, in the first phase, take on approximately 90 Shell employees. This number will grow to 220 after two years.
