HES Wilhelmshaven GmbH has started up its LPG storage and handling operations supported by a long-term agreement.
A wholly owned subsidiary of Dutch group HES International BV, HES Wilhelmshaven has refurbished and upgraded six existing LPG spheres with a total capacity of 16,480 cbm, jetty infrastructure, fire-fighting system, pipelines and rail loading.
“We are excited to develop and diversify the facility as a prime independent storage terminal,” said Sven Partzsch, managing director of HES Wilhelmshaven. Paul van Poecke, head of liquid bulk terminals at HES International, added: “The infrastructure has been modified and upgraded according to our high standards for safety and flexibility. This investment underlines the strategy of HES International and the commitment of its shareholders to grow in the liquid bulk sector. In addition, we’re very pleased with the truck and railcar distribution function into the north German markets that HES Wilhelmshaven has built up over the past few years for petroleum products and LPG.”
