Massive Private Investments Planned for Port of Antwerp

Massive Private Investments Planned for Port of Antwerp

Big plans and investments are being planned for the Port of Antwerp in the coming years.

The SEA-Invest group is planning construction of a new tanker terminal in the Delwaide dock representing an investment of 250 million euros. In the same dock the group will also operate an independent container terminal that it has acquired from Independent Maritime Terminal (IMT). This facility is currently located in the Hansa dock but will be moved to the Delwaide dock where there is space for further development with an additional investment of 50 million euros. Other new activities not directly related to the waterfront will help to re-utilize the space released in the Delwaide dock.

In addition to investments in the Delwaide dock SEA-Invest is also investing in the Hansa dock where it has acquired the container terminal from IMT. On this concession site it will initially build additional tank capacity of 160,000 m³ for Total, with further potential for expansion. The additional capacity will act as an extension of the neighbouring SEA-Tank Terminal facility. The existing terminal became operational in 2010 and was expanded by 340,000 m³ in 2013. It currently has a capacity of 860,000 m³.

International terminal operator Zenith Energy have been awarded a new location for their storage facility at the right bank of the Scheldt. Zenith Energy already has a presence in Amsterdam but wished to find a second location in the strategically very important ARA (Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp) region, and the choice finally fell on Antwerp where the company will ultimately invest 250 million euros.

Antwerp Port Authority is particularly satisfied with the new uses that have been found for existing sites. “Thanks to the huge interest in the port area we have been able to select projects that offer the highest added value for the port area as a whole. The waterfront sites have been reserved for candidates that will generate large freight volumes and so make maximum use of the available maritime infrastructure. As for the non-waterfront sites we have opted for candidates that will help to further develop the chemical and petrochemical cluster,” explained Port Authority CEO Eddy Bruyninckx.
