The latest phase of LBC Rotterdam’s expansion work has been completed – Over the past two weeks three parts of the upper jetty structure were delivered and installed. Despite its size (36m length x 20m height x 10m width) the work was carried out safely and efficiently. At around the same time the hose tower, including sliding beams and three cranes

were installed on top of the structure by Delmeco. This construction allows operators to manipulate the 8” loading hoses in an ergonomically responsible manner using a small remote control unit.

The site, in the Botlek area of Rotterdam, has been undergoing the revamp under the banner of Project Rainbow.

The next step in the project is the commissioning of the new jetty which is set to take place at the beginning of November. Once complete the old jetty will be removed.

The next phase is planned to be completed by Mid-August 2018. This will see another seagoing barge jetty added, doubling current jetty capacity.
