Euroports is set to invest €10 million at quay 850 at the port of Ghent, in Belgium, where the port operator handles fertilizers and minerals.

The investment includes a new, state-of-the-art warehouse, which has a capacity of 85 000 t, and value-added service equipment.

The construction is expected to begin summer of 2016 and the new facilities will be commissioned at the end of this year.

“Ghent is key in our European network of bulk terminals. In 2015, we invested in strengthening our crane capacity in Ghent. This investment is the next step in offering strong supply chain solutions to our customers. We will be able to store extra volumes of dry bulk and offer additional flexibility in the handling of existing flows via a strong value added service offering. The unique location of the port of Ghent offers advantageous hinterland connectivity and supply chain cost savings to our clients. New business opportunities have led to the decision to increase the storage capacity and this investment will help us to achieve our growth targets in the bulk sector,” commented Rudi Hanot, Business Transformation Director at Euroports.

In addition to the wide range of operational services, Euroports Ghent will offer value-added services, including screening and bagging.
