Netherlands-based storage and logistics provider Dekker Group has announced plans to double the capacity of its tank storage facilities at the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
At present, its subsidiary Maastank has 67,900 m3 of storage capacity at its Botlek facility in Rotterdam, but over the next few years, this will grow to around 140,000 m3. The facility currently has 74 tanks from 70-2,400 m3. It specialises in vegetable oils, fats, specialities, oleochemicals and biofuels.
Dekker also plans to increase its existing maritime infrastructure. It currently has 14 loading and unloading points.
Dekker has recently extended its long-term lease contracts for Maastank’s location at Welplaatkade in the Botlek area by 25 years, as well as signed contracts for the adjacent sites, allowing for the expansion.
‘By entering into this new long-term lease for our existing and newly-allocated sites, we plan to further strengthen and expand our market position in this strategic ‘deep sea location’ – based on our position as the foremost provider of specialised tank terminal services for high-grade special vegetable oils, oleochemicals and biofuels,’ says Dekker Managing Director Jan Duel.
