The former Vopak Terminal Amsterdam Westport facility has changed ownership and has been rebranded to Evos Amsterdam after it was acquired by First State Investments.
The tank terminal, which was established in 2011, offers a total storage capacity of more than 1.2 million m3 for various liquid products. Ramon Ernst, who will remain as managing director of the terminal, is existed about the future business prospects for the terminal.
'The Evos Amsterdam terminal is an industry-leading facility for the storage and handling of clean petroleum products. We will continue to deliver outstanding service to our customers and adhere to the highest standards in safety, environment protection and efficiency.
'We are part of a worldwide energy supply chain that serves a broad range of thriving markets. Amsterdam is already a major hub for energy products and is well positioned to become a frontrunner in the transition to new forms of energy production, storage and distribution. With our new owners we look forward to contributing to these exciting developments.'
Alex Nassuphis, director of infrastructure investments, First State Investments, adds: '[The terminal] provides an excellent fit with First State's long-term infrastructure investment philosophy. FSI looks forward to working with the highly skilled management team and employees on site and continuing to develop and grow the business.'
