Vopak is investing in eight 50,000 cbm stainless steel tanks for the storage of chemicals in the Port of Antwerp at the Vopak Terminal Linkeroever. 

The new tanks will be connected to the new jetty that is currently under construction. This jetty will have two berths and will be suitable for vessels up to 80,000 DwT. 

Monoethylene Glycol (MEG), among other products, will be stored in the new tanks. MEG is a key component in the manufacturing of a wide variety of consumer goods such as polyester clothing, packaging, and anti-freeze products. 

The Port of Antwerp hosts one of the main industrial chemical clusters in Western Europe and is a strategic location for Vopak. Vopak has in Antwerp close to 800,000 cbm of well-connected, independent storage capacity and is expanding its footprint. Vopak Antwerp has a workforce of more than 500 people, and the expansion is expected to generate more jobs.
