Koole starts work on Botlek upgrade

Koole Terminals has started jetty replacement work at its Botlek terminal in Rotterdam. The project includes the replacement of 600 metres of quay wall and installation of a concrete foundation for pipe racks. This will house new loading/unloading facilities and hose towers to tranship products such as biodiesel, methanol and FAME. The design of the seagoing jetties is based on functional specifications developed in collaboration with the Port of Rotterdam.

“Our location is an important logistics hub for our international customers from all over the world,” notes terminal manager Martijn Joon. “Large bulk ships often moor at our terminal, to make use of our services. We are increasing the lifespan of this quay so that we can offer even safer and more efficient integrated solutions in the storage and transhipment of a specific product for the customer. The approach is characterised by its high complexity, due to the interaction and involvement between the numerous parties involved, and the use of the latest technology. It will offer enormous potential for the future of Koole and its customers, such as faster loading and unloading operations, and therefore an even more effective throughput for our customer. It will accelerate their transportation of goods. But it will also, in the end, offer Koole more space to significantly expand its tank capacity.”

Work on the new quay and jetties is scheduled to be completed early in 2022.
