The next phase of LBC Tank Terminals' project to improve jetty and land infrastructure in Rotterdam is due to be completed by mid-August 2018.
Project Rainbow aims to triple the current capacity and significantly improve jetty and land infrastructure at its Botlek facility. So far, the upper jetty structure has been delivered and installed and the hose tower has been installed on top of the structure.
The company plans to have the seagoing jetty operation at the beginning of November. Once this has been achieved it will then remove the old jetty to allow free access to the barge jetty.
The next phase will add another seagoing and barge jetty, which, once complete, will double its current jetty capacity.
The company says in an update: 'With the completion of this project our storage capacity will have tripled and not only will we have added seagoing and state-of-the-art barge jetties to our terminal, but these jetties will reduce waiting times at our quay to an absolute minimum such that we can safely serve our customers while maintaining optimum operational excellence standards.
