Inter Terminals' major chemical storage expansion at its Seal Sands terminal in the UK is almost complete.
Representing the largest organic development project for 10 years, the project comprises new tanks and pipeline links on the back of contracted demand for chemical storage at the facility.
Two 7,000 m3 mild steel tanks have been constructed with internal floating roods and a dedicated import pipeline for receiving product into storage by sea. Additionally, an existing cross-country pipeline is being redeveloped to allow the direct transfer of stored product to nearby chemical manufacturing plants.
A further three mild steel tanks, with a total capacity of 13,000 m3, have also been built with interconnecting infrastructure to enable to export of product by sea and by road via a new tanker loading facility.
The facility is located on the River Tees on England's east coast and the investment demonstrates the company's commitment to working closely with its customer base to identify and develop solutions for specific product storage and handling requirements.
Paul Oseland, commercial director of Inter Terminals, says: 'Our Seal Sands terminal has developed specialist expertise in storing and handling a wide range of chemicals, many of which have distinct storage requirements.'
