European Bulk Services (EBS) is expanding its covered storage capacity in the Port of Rotterdam.

Supported by a long-term contract, the capacity will be enlarged with 60 000 cbm. The expansion involves the construction of a shed for various dry bulk materials that need to be stored in covered storage. The infrastructure will be constructed on the existing terminal at the Laurenshaven.

Construction of the shed at the Laurenshaven will start in the summer of 2016 and is expected to be operational as of 1Q17. A new shed for agribulks is also planned at the Europoort terminal.

“We are excited to develop this expansion project, which confirms EBS’s philosophy of providing extremely efficient infrastructure to our customers. The new sheds will be built in line with the terminal’s high standards for safety and flexibility,” said Taco de Vries, Director Business Development Dry Bulk HES International.

Jan Vogel, CEO of HES International, added: “This new investment underlines the strategy of HES International and the commitment of its shareholders to grow further in the dry bulk segment, and strengthen our position in the covered storage of all dry bulk cargo”.
