Chemical investment at the Port of Antwerp

MOL Chemical Tankers and port group SEA-Invest are to invest an excess €300m into the port of Anrtwerp for the construction of tank storage terminal for liquid chemicals.

"This investment is further confirmation of our ports ability to attract major investors. It will also boost our position as one of the largest chemical clusters in the world. This is very good news for the port, and for our economy," concluded Jacques Vandermeiren, CEO of Antwerp Port Authority.

The tank terminal will be located on a 45 hectare site in the Delwaide dock and is expected to create 100 direct jobs. This is only one part of the concession for which the Port Authority issued a Request for Proposals in 2018; six candidates were selected as a result.

Negotiations with the other five candidates are ongoing with a view to making the best use of the remaining part of the site.
