Koole Terminals will expand its biodiesel storage terminal and block train facility at its terminal in the Port of Rotterdam.
The expansion at Koole Tankstorage Minerals will increase rail capacity to an ‘unprecedented level in the Rotterdam harbour’ according to the company.
The development will allow customers to centralise their biodiesel and diesel storage portfolio at one site.
CEO John Kraakman says: ‘Koole Tankstorage Minerals will be the first terminal operator in the ARA to offer block train capabilities of this magnitude and could become a serious competitor to the Hamburg port, which is currently the only – high throughput – diesel block train distribution location amongst the larger ports in north west Europe.’
The new facility will be operational in the second half of 2018.
