ICT Rubis has completed its first direct transloading operations of liquefied gases from a vessel into block train.
The facility, which is suitable for transloading C3 and C4 gases directly from vessel into rail tank cars or block trains, is now fully operational.
In addition to offering storage and transhipment of liquefied gases, the company can now transload these products.
No tank is required during the operation, the vessel pumps the product directly into the rail tank cars through a pipeline via a loading arm.
This development will play a major role in shifting volume from road transportation to the more efficient and ecological rail transport mode and will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions within the port.
Additionally, rail infrastructure has also been expanded and there are now eight loading station positions as well as extra rail tracks.
