The Dekker Group has revealed plans to expand its operations in the port of Rotterdam.
The company had extended its long-term lease contracts for its subsidiary Maastank at Welplaatkade in the Botlek area by 25 years.
Managing director Jan Duel said: “By entering into this new long-term lease for our existing and newly-allocated sites, we plan to further strengthen and expand our market position in this strategic ‘deep sea location’ – based on our position as the foremost provider of specialised tank terminal services for high-grade special vegetable oils, oleochemicals and biofuels.”
Duel also said that there will be no changes to Maastank’s existing organisation.
The firm, which has its headquarters in Ouderkerk a/d IJssel, also plans to double its current volume at the port.
Over the next few years, it will be able to increase the storage capacity of its tank terminal for vegetable oils, oleochemicals and biofuels at Rotterdam’s Botlekhaven, to about 140,000 m3.
In addition, Dekker plans to further expand the existing maritime infrastructure in the port of Rotterdam.
Dekker is a 120-year-old family business with further offices in Dendermonde in Belgium and Poznań in Poland.
