LBC announces expansion of Rotterdam terminal


LBC Tank Terminals has taken the final investment decision to expand its terminal in Rotterdam with 98,000 cubic meters, bringing the total storage capacity to 280,000 cubic meters by 2026. This marks the next milestone in the terminal’s multi-year expansion program, which addresses the growing demand for chemical storage in northwestern Europe.

Completed in 2017, the first phase of the program introduced a new jetty with two berthing positions for both vessels and barges, a centralized loading bay for trucks and 36,000 cubic meters of extra capacity. The second phase, which was operational by the end of 2021, incorporated two more loading positions at the jetty as well as 70,000 cubic meters of additional capacity.

The recently approved third phase includes the construction of three tank pits, accommodating a total of 36 new tanks, and new (block) train (un)loading facilities. Executed in stages, this project is scheduled for commissioning between the fourth quarter of 2025 and the first quarter of 2026.

"As we move into the next phase, I am excited about the opportunities ahead of us. The commitment and hard work of our team has been the driving force behind our journey thus far, and I take immense pride in our achievements. LBC Rotterdam's growth is a testament to the collective success of dedicated team players enthusiastic about our role in shaping a more sustainable future, and I look forward to the continued progress on this important path”, says Erik Kleine, General Manager Europe.

LBC Tank Terminals remains at the forefront of industry advancements by responding to the growing demand for storage and handling of chemicals and products emerging from the energy transition. This expansion not only solidifies LBC Rotterdam’s standing as a key player in the region with well-established expertise in safe and efficient storage and handling of chemical products, but also aligns seamlessly with the organization’s ambitions, demonstrating that environmental responsibility and industry growth go hand in hand.
