Specifically, the facility will be fully automated, consisting of built-in sustainability features such as onshore power for vessels moored at the terminal.

Meanwhile, the project will cost around 200 million euros. Like the terminal in Doordrecht (Netherlands), the focus will be on distribution of chemical products for niche chemical markets. The size of the storage tanks varies from 500 to 3500 m3.

Hametha managing director Ronald Ooms highlighted

We aim to build on our success with chemical storage and further expand it. In Antwerp we will be able to further develop in the niche market of more specialised chemicals and serve our customers from all over the world.

Concluding, Standic, with the new terminal, contributes to the sustainable development of the Antwerp port platform. As a result, large chemical tankers will be able to reach the terminal easily thanks to the favourable depth in the port.
