CLH has invested more than €10 million to increase its oil product storage capacity and improve operations at its Barcelona facility.
The Spanish logistics company has constructed two new storage tanks of 11,000 m3 each, representing a total investment of more than €3 million.
In addition, CLH has allocated €7 million to operational improvements in the tanks, increasing pump flows and improving the safety and environmental protection measure of the facility. These investments will lead to an increase in the productivity of the plant, as well as providing flexibility to attend more effectively to the new demands of customers.
The main investment here has been dedicated to the adaptation of six tanks to enable them to store different products at a cost of €2.4 million. This enables the company to better meet current market demands.
A further €1.8 million has been allocated to the construction of a new water treatment unit. New pumps have been installed with higher flow rates and some sections of the pipeline that share entry flows from the moorings with other movements have been split, making it possible to carry out delivery and dispatch operations simultaneously and to handle different products.
Various improvements have also been made to the safety and environmental protection systems at the terminal, including improvements to the fire protection system.
