HES Botlek Tank Terminal has commissioned six additional tanks for the storage of biodiesel. The additional tanks have a capacity of 20,000 cbm, bringing the terminal’s total capacity to over 510,000 cbm.

HES Botlek contracted SJR Tank Construction following the company’s successful completion of seven tanks with a combined capacity of 70,000 cbm.

The storage tanks are fixed roof tanks with an internal floating roof. The terminal is one of the most environment-friendly tank terminals in the world and is the first terminal in the Netherlands to be awarded the ISO 28001 certificate.

The terminal more than doubled its capacity to 490,000 cbm in 2017 and is expanding its berth capacity accordingly. A large part of the capacity is used for storage of clean petroleum products while the remaining part is dedicated to biofuels.
