HES International has just released the latest update on their HES Hartel Tank Terminal development project in the Port of Rotterdam.
The new tank terminal will be the first terminal in the Netherlands that will be built according to the latest PGS 29 regulations for tank storage, meaning that the terminal will meet very high safety and environmental standards.
In Q4 2018, contractors have commenced with excavation works as well as civil works.
Construction works for building the tanks and related piping will be executed by a consortium of contractors. Around ten companies, from engineering companies to suppliers of building materials, will construct one of the most modern and safe liquid bulk storage terminals in the Netherlands.
It is the expectation that the terminal will be operational as from Q3 2021.
Port of Rotterdam Authority started construction of the quay wall in January 2018 and construction works are on schedule.
In addition to a 1,200 meter long deep-sea quay wall, a 1,000 meter-long quay wall will also be built for inland barges, together with a 350 meter long jetty.
At the same time, dredging and earthmoving work will be undertaken, as well as bank and harbor basin protection.
Work on these maritime facilities will be completed at the end of 2019, as planned.
