Vopak invests in feedstock storage capacity in Port of Rotterdam
The European market for renewable energy is rising, so Vopak is investing in the Port of Rotterdam for the storage of waste-based feedstocks used to produce biodiesel and sustainable aviation fuel.
Sixteen new tanks with a combined capacity of nearly 17 million gallons will be built at Vopak Terminal Vlaardingen. The feedstocks to be stored in the new tanks include used cooking oil and tallow.
“This project fits well within Vopak’s ambition to support our customers and society by developing and investing in infrastructure solutions for facilitating more sustainable energies and feedstocks,” said Patrick van der Voort, president of the Europe and Africa division of Vopak. “We are looking forward to continuing to invest in the Port of Rotterdam.”
The terminal is strategically located at the Port of Rotterdam, and the company says it is well-connected for multiple modes of transportation.
