New Jetty Announced at LBC Terminal in Botlek

The Port of Rotterdam and the independent storage company LBC Tank Terminals have reached a long term agreement for the construction of a new jetty at the LBC terminal in Botlek – Rotterdam. 

This new jetty is the first and a very important step in the expansion of our terminal in Rotterdam. The growing import of liquid chemicals into Europe results in an increasing demand for liquid storage tanks in hubs such as Rotterdam. This investment will enable us to offer additional capacity and to respond even better to the storage requests of existing and new customers,” said Luc Jorissen, Business President at LBC.

The CEO of the Port of Rotterdam, Allard Castelein, added: “This development perfectly fits into our ambition to further develop the nautical infrastructure as well as raising the service level of Rotterdam tank storage providers.

The new jetty will have four berths, two for seagoing vessels and two for barges. This will quadruple the jetty capacity of the LBC terminal. The jetty will be constructed to facilitate seagoing vessels with a maximum draft of up to 13 meters.

The jetty will be built in two phases. The first phase, comprising the construction of two berths, will be ready by mid-2016 while the full jetty will be completed by the beginning of 2017. LBC will then be able to handle two parcel tankers of up to 40.000 DWT simultaneously.

In addition to the construction of this new jetty, LBC is investing in the expansion of its Rotterdam terminal up to a total storage capacity of 250.000m³, which is a tripling of its current capacity.

The first expansion of 36.000m³ will be operational in the second half of 2016.
