Terminal

AS Alexela Terminal is a daughter company of
AS Alexela Logistics, which stores light oil products,
petrochemicals and liquified gas, and handles their
transport. The terminal receives goods arriving by sea, 
rail or tank trucks, stores it in the tanks of a customs or 
excise warehouse and delivers it to the same type of 
transport according to the needs of the client.

The terminal is located on a 28-hectare site next to Port of Tallinn Paldiski South Harbour and it is the only oil products rehandling terminal in Paldiski. We began designing the terminal in 1998, the first construction stage was completed in late 2001, and the first tanker was loaded in January 2002.

The terminal has a tankfarm of 358 000 m³. The terminal accommodates a light oil products discharge rack with 68 places that can unload a block train in 4 hours, as well as a discharge rack for petrochemicals and crude oil with 19 places, and a gas discharge rack with 18 places. The maximum speed of loading cargo on tankers is 2 500 m³/h and tankers can be served simultaneously on two jetties.

Modern technology allows for various types of oil products to be stored and handled in the terminal at the same time, while guaranteeing complete separation. The following oil products are handled in the terminal:

  • petrol
  • diesel fuel
  • crude oil
  • gas condensate
  • methanol
  • benzene
  • butane
  • isopentane
  • orthoxylene
  • paraxylene
  • toluene

In 2012, we commenced production of aviation gasoline (AVGAS) in the terminal.

The terminal hosts an independent laboratory, which guarantees product quality and quantity control, and it produces a wide range of analyses within extremely tight deadlines.

Since 2002, the terminal has been certified according to the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001
quality standards.
