[post_content] => Standic has announced plans to build a new storage terminal in Antwerp with an initial capacity of 95,000 m³. The €200m project, due to open in early 2021, will be designed to handle a wide range of chemicals in tanks varying in size from 500 to 3,500 m³. There is the potential to expand the site to as much as 230,000 m³.
“The Port of Antwerp is known as one of the largest maritime clusters in the world, which is why we chose it for our expansion,” says Ronald Ooms, managing director of Hametha, Standic’s parent company. “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.”
"The new Standic terminal will further boost the synergy between the various industrial companies in the port, thus helping to make logistic operations and processes even more cost-efficient," says William Demoor, customer relations manager at the Port of Antwerp. "Furthermore, the location is ideal for multimodal access, a key factor for sustainable distribution of chemicals."
Standic currently operates some 230,000 m³ of tank storage capacity in Dordrecht, the Netherlands, for chemicals, biofuels and base oils.
