LBC Tank Terminals will expand its Rotterdam-Botlek storage terminal with an additional 70,000 m3 of chemical capacity.
The investment will bring total capacity at the facility to 180,000 m3 and is part of a multiyear investment programme to revamp and expand the Rotterdam site. The additional capacity will serve the growing market for the storage and transhipment of chemicals in the Port of Rotterdam.
The project will involve the expansion of the newly built deep-sea jetty with two additional berthing positions. The jetty can handle vessels up to 75,000 DWT with a maximum draft of 14.5 meters.
The expansion is due to be complete by the third quarter of 2021.
