Marcor targets from the end of 2023, after the redevelopment and construction of state-of-the-art storage facilities, to phase in sustainable and efficient storage and stevedoring operations at the site.

Marcor already has the ambition for a few years to expand its floating terminal operations through the addition of a dry bulk terminal ashore.

Our planned development at the Steinweg Hartel Terminal aims to provide our current and new customers, amongst others, with:

  • The expansion of flexible stevedoring and storage capacity.
  • Multi-modal connectivity, beyond our current floating operations adding truck and rail connectivity.
  • Multiple options to handle bulk, whether loose, in jumbo bags or containerised.
  • The potential to introduce additional value added services.
  • Facilities suitable for the import, export and transshipment of a wide variety of goods, including agri-bulk, biomass, concentrates, fertilizers, (industrial) minerals and ores.

Key details of the development and the Steinweg Hartel Terminal include:

  • 130 000 m2 terminal.
  • 600 m quay with 16 m draft alongside.
  • Vessel handling options from barges up to 120 000 DWT baby-cape vessels, both for board-to-board transshipment and discharge to/from terminal.
  • Existing 28 000 m2 warehouse will be utilised for the storage of bulk (loose/bagged) and value added services.
  • Construction of covered quay warehouses with fully (± 18) segregated bunkers, directly reachable through a single manipulation crane grab.
  • Located in the near vicinity of the N15 Highway at the beginning of the 1e Maasvlakte.
  • Existing double rail track at the terminal, suitable for ± 2 x 225 m train combinations.
  • A sustainable operating model, including electrified shore cranes and conveying equipment, with 11 000 SQM solar panels being already installed.

A final investment decision for the development will be made latest end of 2022. The plans for the development of the terminal were made in dialogue with Havenbedrijf Rotterdam and Steinweg.
