Tanks and Terminals,
Eurotank Amsterdam (ETA, part of VTTI) is investing in the conversion of its gas oil tanks, making them suitable for storing biofuels, mixed biofuels and hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), following a successful pilot project. The project will realise a total capacity of 75 000 m3 and the first phase will be commissioned at the end of this year. It is an important step for ETA, in its ambition to provide storage for renewable energy and play an important role in the energy transition of the Port of Amsterdam.
ETA is also developing the infrastructure for these sustainable fuels. The jetties and loading arms will be upgraded this year and a new truck loading station will be built. These investments will create an important sustainable logistics hub, because of the terminal’s strategic location. The Port of Amsterdam is well connected by ships, trucks and trains to Europe and the rest of the world.
