Koole Terminals has begun operations at the storage facility for petrol and diesel in Pernis that it recently acquired from BP. The companies have a long-standing relationship. The newly acquired terminal is adjacent to the existing Koole terminal.
The acquired terminal has a capacity of 200,000 cubic metres. It has its own jetty for sea-going vessels and a loading station for tankers. The terminal is connected to the BP refinery in Europoort by pipeline. BP is leasing back part of the storage facility it sold to Koole, as well as the truck loading station, on the basis of a long-term contract.
Koole Terminals has terminals in Zaandam, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Nijmegen in the Netherlands, and in the United Kingdom and Poland, with a total capacity of two million cubic metres. The liquid bulk stored not only includes petrol and diesel, but also biofuels, edible oils and fats, mineral oil products and chemicals.
