This marked the next milestone in the terminal’s multi-year expansion program, which aims to address the growing demand for chemical storage in northwestern Europe.

Completed in 2017, the first phase of the program introduced a new jetty with two berthing positions for both vessels and barges, a centralised loading bay for trucks and 36 000 m3 of extra capacity. The second phase, which was operational by the end of 2021, incorporated two more loading positions at the jetty as well as 70 000 m3 of additional capacity.

The recently approved third phase included the construction of three tank pits, accommodating a total of 36 new tanks, and new (block) train (un)loading facilities. Executed in stages, this project has been scheduled for commissioning between the 4Q25 and the 1Q26.

"As we move into the next phase, I am excited about the opportunities ahead of us. The commitment and hard work of our team has been the driving force behind our journey thus far, and I take immense pride in our achievements. LBC Rotterdam's growth is a testament to the collective success of dedicated team players enthusiastic about our role in shaping a more sustainable future, and I look forward to the continued progress on this important path”, said Erik Kleine, General Manager Europe.

The expansion not only solidified LBC Rotterdam’s standing as a key player in the region with well-established expertise in safe and efficient storage and handling of chemical products, but also aligned with the organisation’s ambitions, demonstrating that environmental responsibility and industry growth go hand in hand.
