With a new, fully automated tankpit comprising seven tanks of a total 12,700 cbm capacity, Odfjell said Noord Natie Odfjell Antwerp Terminal (NNOAT) significantly increases storage volume for the European chemical market: “In a time of increased demand, customers now get a welcomed addition of quality accommodation for a wide range of chemical and base oil products.”

Adrian Lenning, Global Head of Terminals, said: “Noord Natie Odfjell Antwerp Terminal is a strategic component to our terminal platform and the expansion of the tankpit marks another step in realising the inherent potential of the Antwerp terminal. The terminal team and contractors have done a fantastic job in safely and successfully bringing the new capacity onstream during these unprecedented times.”

The new tankpit is part of NNOAT’s ambitious expansion programme at the fourth harbour dock in the Antwerp port. This is the third fully automated tankpit at the terminal, setting the standard in terms of operational safety and efficiency. 

Comprising seven stainless-steel tanks that are tailored to specialty chemicals, the tankpit further increases the terminal’s unique capacity for storage and related services.
