European Bulk Services (EBS) B.V., a 100% subsidiary of HES International B.V., has brought its latest new covered storage facility into operation.
With this new multipurpose facility, the company’s existing storage capacity of 650 000 m3 has increased to 700 000 m3, strengthening its position as a leading provider of covered storage for dry bulk products in the Port of Rotterdam.
The new facility is situated at the EBS Europoort location and has a capacity of 50 000 m3. It is suitable for the storage of agricultural products and consists of seven separate sections. The design is carried out with a strong focus on flexibility for customers and stringent safety and environmental standards. Products can be loaded onto barge, rail, and truck to continue on to their final destination.
A long-term contract with a customer has already been concluded for this new facility, the construction of which was executed by Zu¨blin Nederland, part of the European Strabag construction group, within agreed budget and timeline.
EBS’s covered storage capacity now totals 700 000 m3 and is well on track in executing a multi-year masterplan to extend its covered storage capacity by 350 000 m3 – of which 236 000 m3 has now been realised. Furthermore, a permit for yet another new warehouse at the EBS Botlek location has already been obtained. A tender process for construction companies is underway.
