LBC Tank Terminals has celebrated another milestone in its Rotterdam expansion project after the first vessel berthed at its new jetty.
The company is currently expanding its LBC Rotterdam facility in the Botlek to triple the current capacity and improve jetty and land infrastructure.
The first phase of project Rainbow is close to completion. The first new tanks became fully operational in April and the terminal berthed the first vessel at its new jetty.
The jetty is the result of a collaboration between the Port of Rotterdam and LBC Tank Terminal.
During the coming months, LBC will focus on its product transfer programme, where it will connect all existing tanks to the new jetty and demolish the redundant jetty. Once this phase is complete, the new jetty will be extended to allow for four berthing positions – two for seagoing vessels and two for barges.
The company says in a statement: 'To realise our vision of creating a sustainable future for LBC, all its employees and customers, we will continue our expansion with new project phases. The provisional plans are currently under review by our engineering team.'
