Botlek Tank Terminal (BTT) will be significantly expanding its capacity in the port of Rotterdam – from 200,000 to 467,000 cubic metres. Following construction, which starts in May of this year – with final acceptance scheduled for mid-2017 – the local subsidiary of storage and handling firm HES will have gained fourteen storage tanks and three new quays for inland vessels.
With 34 storage tanks for mineral oils, biodiesel and edible oils, BTT’s existing terminal is a so-called ‘zero emissions terminal’. It is also one of the most environmentally-friendly tank terminals in the world. BTT ultimately intends to expand its storage capacity in Rotterdam to roughly 750,000 cubic metres.
