Construction work has started on additional stainless steel storage tanks at LBC Tank Terminals’ facility in Rotterdam.
The company says that in order to meet increasing customer demand, it started construction work in February. In addition to expanding its jetty capabilities, capacity at the terminal will increase to 250,000 m3.
The first 36,000 m3 expansion of stainless steel tanks has started and is expected to be operational in the first half of 2017.
Railcar and truck loading facilities will also be upgraded to accommodate a large range of liquid chemicals.
The facilities will be able to handle products requiring vapour treatment, mixing and blending as well as those requiring dedicated temperature control.
The company says in a statement: ‘This innovative expansion matched the ambition of LBC to become the most efficient terminal in the Port of Rotterdam when it comes to ship-to-shore interface and ship-turnaround times.’
