Three years ago Odfjell Nangang Terminals (Tianjin) (ONTT) started its long and challenging journey to become Odfjell’s largest tank storage terminal in China. After more than two years of hard work, the company says it is now “sprinting towards the finishing line”. With an initial completed storage capacity of 137,800 cbm, ONTT will be Odfjell’s largest storage terminal in China. The terminal is located to the nearest port to the inland areas of north and northwest China among all the ports around the Bohai Bay.
The location has attracted customers both inside and outside the Nangang Industrial Zone, covering a wide range of products such as base oil, mixed aromatics, EDC, methanol, gasoline and diesels.
Three new berths with the capacity to accommodate vessels up to 50,000 dwt will be operational by the end of this year to meet the production needs for its first industrial customer whose production plant is scheduled to produce a variety of lube oil for the huge Chinese car market. The storage tanks are expected to be operational by 1 April 2015.
