The Western Jutland major port of Esbjerg is thriving. In 2011, Esbjerg port produced its best result ever with a surplus of 59 million Danish kroner. The result represented an increase of 26 percent in comparison with 2010 and port director Ole Ingrisch expects this year’s result to be equally as positive, if not more so. His recipe for the port’s success is that it has managed to act quickly once the development changed from bacon to drilling rigs.
“We deal with business areas that are in growth. Offshore, oil and gas, and ro-ro are our three major specialties, and as opposed to the container and bulk markets, they are not suffering. Therefore, we have been able to grow throughout the crisis. We have been in an anti-cyclical trend in relation to the rest of society because our business benefits from high oil prices, a pretty good dollar rate, and a CO2 policy which is beneficial to us,” says Ole Ingrisch, who has been the port director of Esbjerg for 10 years.
