Start of expansion works of Vopak Terquimsa terminal in Tarragona

The implementation of the expansion works of the Vopak Terquimsa terminal in Tarragona have recently begun and is expected a duration of a period of 10 months.

The investment  of Vopak Terquimsa, of 7.5 million euros, will add 13.200 m3 of capacity in 6 new tanks of storage, that will result in a total capacity of more than 400.000 m3 in Tarragona. This will strengthen the strategic position of the Tarragona terminal in the Western Mediterranean area and in northeastern Spain.

With a current capacity of 390.000 m3, the Tarragona facilities are the largest in the company, which has also another storage facility at the harbor of Barcelona with 213.000 m3 of capacity.

The Buenavista project is part of the 2012-2016 strategic investment plan of Vopak Terquimsa and its commitment to the Port of Tarragona, as states the accumulated investment in this period in Tarragona, which will exceed 19 million euros.

With its expansion, Vopak Terquimsa will occupy one third of the 32 hectares of the Chemical dock of Tarragona, reinforcing its leadership position in the harbor of this city. It is expected that the new terminal of the company in Tarragona will be operative at the beginning of next year.
