VOPAK TERQUIMSA CELEBRATES THE SHE DAY 2019 WITH THE INAGURATION OF THE EXTENSION OF THE TERMINAL IN THE PORT OF TARRAGONA

10 April 2019

Vopak Terquimsa has celebrated the twelfth edition of the GLOBAL SHE DAY, an event that is held simultaneously in the Vopak group's 67 terminals. Under the motto ‘Trust and verify’ Vopak has highlighted the importance of day-to-day safety and commitment to prevention, values ​​that both have always characterized Vopak Terquimsa.

The GLOBAL SHE DAY has counted, as a prelude, on a family photo of the representatives of the companies that have participated in the construction of the bunded area 15, the second extension of the 'Buenavista' project, located at the Chemical dock, once the works have been completed . Eduardo Sañudo, General Director of the company, assured that «we are very satisfied with the commissioning of this new capacity and for having added more than 120,000 hours of construction work without security incidents, which demonstrates not only our commitment to security, but also that of our contractor companies». The works started in April 2018 and have been executed in record time, allowing Vopak Terquimsa to expand its storage capacity by 27,500 m3. With this expansion, the company currently has more than 430,000 m3 of capacity and strengthens its leading position in the Mediterranean area.

Vopak Terquimsa has shown once again its persistent effort to maintain a safe and sustainable work environment for its own employees, collaborators and also for the entire community. The company has organized a series of interactive workshops among its employees to work on issues such as security and leadership, with the participation of Xesco Espar, an inspiring coach who has subsequently given a presentation to all those attending the GLOBAL SHE DAY.

In relation with safety recognitions, Vopak Terquimsa has awarded the external prize to the Carbonell Figueras company, for its excellent work in safety during the construction of the bunded area 15. The internal security distinctions of the GLOBAL SHE DAY of Vopak Terquimsa has fallen to José Luís Martinez and Álvaro Ruiz de Eguilaz for their commitment and career in security within the company. In addition, in social matters, the Club Atletisme Vila-seca and the Down Tarragona Association have been the organizations who have received the company's aid for their projects in promoting sports and inclusion, values ​​linked to Vopak Terquimsa.

The GLOBAL SHE DAY celebrated today in the facilities of Vopak Terquimsa in the harbour of Tarragona has brought together about two hundred people, including authorities, representatives of companies of the Chemical Business Association of Tarragona (AEQT), public institutions, administrations, neighborhood associations, customers, suppliers and employees of the company.
