PERN has announced plans to more than double storage capacity at its Gdansk Oil Terminal with the addition of five tanks.
Launching a tender process, PERN plans to increase capacity at the facility by another 2.45 million barrels as part of its phased growth plans. The first phase of construction is complete, according to the company, and comprises six storage tanks, each with 393,000 barrels of capacity, totally 2.35 million barrels.
It is due to complete the second phase by the third quarter of 2020.
Additionally, it also plans to expand its tank facility in Gorki Zachodnie with the addition of two storage tanks each with 630,000 barrels of capacity.
The storage tanks will be connected to the existing infrastructure of the tank farm in Gdansk and to the remaining pipeline infrastructure of the company. The company says this will 'give more possibilities for oil storage for the company's clients and greater operational capacity for handling vehicles coming to the North Port (PPPP Naftoport).
