About this project
For the tank storage company LBC Terminal in the Botlek, Vicoma further developed their existing terminal together with LBC. A new jetty was built for the terminal, suitable for sea and inland vessels. Vicoma designed the jetty in detail and laid the basis for the new tank pits and the pipe and coupling systems.
Designing tank terminals is familiar territory for Vicoma’s Rotterdam office. There have been terminals in the Rotterdam harbour area before, in which Vicoma had a leading role. With the construction of this future expansion and modernisation of the existing LBC tank terminal, the tank storage company is anticipating the future.
At the renovated tank terminal, existing and new tank pits are connected to each other and to the various loading points by means of a flexible network of pipes. This flexible system enables LBC to meet any future customer requirements, regardless of the product stored in their tanks. The first new tank pits and the new jetty were delivered ready for operation in early 2017.
