Ineos Phenol Belgium, the world’s largest producer of phenol and acetone, and ADPO, a logistic service provider specialising in integrated liquid bulk logistics, have signed a cooperation agreement which will give ADPO’s new terminal water access to the river Scheldt via the existing Ineos Phenol jetty and will connect the Ineos Phenol site to the European rail.
ADPO is building a new 12-hectare (ha) tank storage terminal on the left bank of the river Scheldt in the Port of Antwerp. This terminal will be named ADPO Liefkenshoek Logistic Hub (ADPO LLH).
Phase one of the project will contain 27,000m3 mild steel and 10,000m3 stainless steel tank storage capacity, a 10,000 m2 chemical warehouse and a 3ha iso container storage parking.
Phase two will see expansion for another 3 tank compounds containing 60,000m3 tank storage capacity.
ADPO is also investing in a state-of-the-art loading platform for tank cars and an extensive railway infrastructure (1500m rail track length on site with integrated weighing bridges).
The Ineos Phenol jetty will be expanded with a ship position of 20,000 dwt capacity.
Commissioning of the new terminal is scheduled for Q2 2015.
