Vesta Terminals will expand storage capacity at its Antwerp facility and add two additional barge berths.
The project comprises an additional 150,000 m3 as well as two additional barge berths. This project will involve demolishing parts of its current infrastructure and replacing it with larger thanks. The capacity will handle mainly middle distillates, light ends and heavy fuels.
Other storage projects are also progressing at the Port of Antwerp, which is looking to optimise current infrastructure as well as focus on new emerging markets, such as LNG and LPG.
