Botlek Tank Terminal to more than double its capacity
Botlek Tank Terminal (BTT), a wholly owned subsidiary of HES International BV, is pleased to announce the expansion of its storage capacity in the Port of Rotterdam. Supported by a long term contract, the capacity will be more than doubled from 200,000 cbm to 467,000 cbm. The expansion involves the construction of 14 storage tanks for clean petroleum products and the development of three additional barge berths to cater for the long term logistical needs of the new customers. The infrastructure will be constructed on the land that had been reclaimed by the Port of Rotterdam for the expansion of BTT, and will start in May 2016 with a planned commencement of operations by mid 2017.

“We are excited to develop this expansion project which confirms BTT’s philosophy of providing extremely efficient infrastructure to our customers. The new tanks will be built in line with the terminal’s high standards for safety and flexibility.” said Charles Smissaert, Managing Director of BTT. Paul van Poecke, Head of Liquid Bulk Terminals at HES International added: “The new investment underlines the strategy of HES International and the commitment of its shareholders to grow further in the liquid bulk segment, both at our existing liquid bulk terminals in Rotterdam, Wilhelmshaven and Gdynia as well as through greenfield development and acquisitions.”

About BTT

The terminal currently operates 34 tanks, with a total storage capacity of 200,000 cbm. The actual capacity is divided in 130.000 cbm used for the storage of clean petroleum products and 70.000 cbm suitable for biodiesel and vegetable oils.
The state-of-the-art infrastructure has ample deep water berths and facilities which allow for the storage and transhipment of a wide range of liquid bulk products. The 420 meter long sea jetty is capable of simultaneously handling two seagoing vessels of up to 115,000 DWT and two river barges.
