Inter Terminals Sweden, in collaboration with SAS, is expanding its aviation fuel facility in the Port of Gävle by converting tanks from conventional fossil heating oil storage to a blending and storage facility for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

SAS has set an ambitious environmental target to fuel SAF equivalent to SAS’ fuel consumption in Scandinavia by 2030. To achieve this target, SAS must significantly increase the share of sustainable aviation fuel each year. This investment will contribute towards that target. The new facility will be ready for operation in summer 2024.

‘Our demand for SAF is significant, but there is a need for investments throughout the entire value chain to enable us to transition to more sustainable flights. That’s why it’s important for us to partner up and have a proactive approach to ensure a sufficient and efficient SAF value chain. SAS use of SAF today is low in comparison to our future demand and needs to increase significantly as the usage of SAF directly correlates with lower flight emissions,’ says Ann-Sofie Hörlin, head of sustainability at SAS.

‘With the proximity to Stockholm Arlanda Airport and well-developed logistics solutions for both vessels and rail, Inter Terminals is well positioned to contribute to the aviation industry’s goal of being climate-neutral by 2050. We are delighted to implement this project together with SAS,’ says Inter Terminals Sweden’s managing director Johan Zettergren.

‘Thanks to the initiative of ITS and SAS the capacity for handling SAF in Gävle will increase further. This is warmly welcomed by the Port of Gävle and fully aligned with the port’s strategy of enabling a green transition and a sustainable logistics and energy system,’ says Fredrik Svanbom, CEO at Port of Gävle.
