Matrix Service Company has announced that its subsidiary, Matrix Service Inc. has been awarded the engineering, fabrication, procurement, and construction of 10 new tanks and associated balance of plant work by Vopak Americas, a division of Royal Vopak, for their Deer Park Brownfield Expansion project. The planned expansion at the Vopak Terminal Deer Park, located on the Houston Ship Channel, will add approximately 138 000 m3 of capacity and related infrastructure to receive, store and export ethanol and biodiesel products.

"We are extremely proud to have been selected as the EPC contractor for this significant terminal expansion, which underscores Vopak's leading position in the independent tank storage market and supports the growing global demand for biofuels," said John Hewitt, CEO of Matrix Service Company. "We appreciate the trust Vopak has placed in us and look forward to completing this project safely, on time and on budget."

The project was awarded and commenced in mid-December 2016 and is expected to be commissioned by Vopak in the first calendar quarter of 2019 (1Q19).

"We are excited to be expanding our Deer Park Terminal with a state-of-the-art zero-emission tank capacity and relevant infrastructure," said Boudewijn Siemons, Division President for Vopak Americas. "Sustainability is a core value at Vopak and this investment ensures all emissions, including tank venting are captured and destroyed." "With their long-standing reputation as a leader in the EPC of storage tanks and terminals, we are confident in Matrix Service's ability to meet our exacting standards for safety and quality."
