Vopak, Port of Amsterdam Invest in Westpoort Terminal

Vopak and the Port of Amsterdam have just announced their plans to jointly invest in additional vessel handling infrastructure at Vopak Terminal Amsterdam Westpoort.

Under this development program, one jetty will be extended with one berth for seagoing vessels and a new quay wall with two berths for barges will be built, bringing the total number of berths to 4 for seagoing vessels and 10 for barges by the end of 2018.

Ramon Ernst, Managing Director Vopak Terminal Amsterdam Westpoort, said: “The high throughput volumes at our state-of the-art terminal can occasionally result in queues for vessels and barges. This investment will increase the vessel handling capabilities at our terminal and thereby – together with the new sea lock – improve the overall service and efficiency in the port of Amsterdam.”

Koen Overtoom, CEO Port of Amsterdam, added: ”This joint investment underlines the importance of liquid bulk for our port and our clients and also shows our strategy to challenge the business to use the space more efficiently and increase activity per square meter.”

In line with the modern operating philosophy of Vopak Terminal Amsterdam Westpoort, the new infrastructure will be highly automated and fully connected to the vapour recovery unit, Vopak said in its announcement.
