Aegean Oil Terminal Corporation (AOT), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aegean Marine Petroleum Network, has completed construction of a new terminal in the Port of Fujairah with approximately 465,000m3 of storage. The terminal, which is expected to be in service by the end of 2014, is designed to store Class I, Class II, and Class III products from gasoline to fuel oil.
The new terminal features 15 storage tanks and direct pipeline access to the Port of Fujairah's common jetty manifold system, in-tank and in-line blending, heating and a truck loading station with two bays.
In keeping with Aegean's company-wide focus on safety the new terminal is equipped with secondary spill containment and leak detection systems on all tanks.
