LBC Tank Terminals has just announced it has taken the final investment decision to expand the terminal at RotterdamBotlek with 70,000 m3 of additional capacity. This brings the total capacity of the terminal to 180,000 m3.

LBC currently owns and operates seven terminals in Houston, Freeport, Baton Rouge, Antwerp and Rotterdam, with a combined storage capacity of 2.5 million m³, serving over 100 customers “including all major players”, it said in a statement. 

It said this investment “is part of a multiyear investment program to revamp and expand the Rotterdam site. The additional capacity is intended to serve the growing market for the storage and transshipment of chemicals in the Port of Rotterdam.”

Part of the project will involve the expansion of the newly built deep-sea jetty with two additional berthing positions. The jetty can handle vessels up to 75,000 DWT with a maximum draft of 14.5 metres. 

The project is planned to be completed by Q3 of 2021.
