HES Botlek Tank Terminal's storage capacity expansion is almost complete following the completion of the last tank.
The last tank, which was built off-site, will be transported to the facility on July 21, thus concluding the project which comprised seven ready-to-install tanks with a volume of 10,000 m3, which were transported from the SJR Group's Rotterdam construction site to Botlek over water.
Charles Smissaert, MD of terminal, says: 'The construction and delivery of these tanks is part of a bigger project, which is set to more than double HES Botlek Tank Terminal's storage capacity from 200,000 m3 to 477,000 m3.
'The expansion has been partly executed by the delivery of a total of seven off-site constructed storage tanks. This expansion is covered by a multi-year contract.
