Vesta Terminals has announced plans to expand storage capacity at its Antwerp facility for (bio) jet fuel, gasoil & diesel.
The expansion comprises five new tanks of 30,000 m3 each, totalling 150,000 m3 of storage, which will be connected to the jetties and the CEPS pipeline system, connecting the terminal to most major airports in West and North-West Europe. Dedicated pipeline systems for (bio) jet fuel will be built to ensure product quality requirements.
The investment is compliant with the latest health, safety and environmental standards and includes investments in water draw-off and (multiple) filtering systems, additivation and round pumping systems.
The project brings total capacity of Vesta Terminal Antwerp to almost 950,000 m3.
The operator says that European jet fuel supply has been under increasing pressure due to growing demand and logistical constraints and more storage capacity is needed to meet this demand. Tanks and pipeline infrastructure will be built with maximum flexibility and allow the storage and handling of different grades and products simultaneously.
Most of the capacity at the terminal has been built for multiple product use, reducing risk for its customers in negative market structures.
The investment supports the need for an efficient jet fuel supply infrastructure and the growth ambition of Vesta Terminals.
