Royal Vopak is applying and testing the use of Solar Powerfoil on a tank roof in the Port of Rotterdam. 

The flexible, thin and lightweight Solar Powerfoil is currently being applied on the tank roof of a storage tank at Vopak Vlaardingen (non-ATEX-environment). The main products stored at this terminal are edible oils. “Energy is needed to handle these products because many edible oils easily solidify in our climate,” said Vopak.

Ard Huisman, Managing Director Vopak Vlaardingen, said: “This Solar Powerfoil is, next to insulation, one of the measurements that we are currently testing to see how we can further reduce our CO2-footprint.”
