The new crude oil terminal in the Port of Saldanha Bay is built as a state-of-the-art facility in accordance with the highest safety and environmental standards. The terminal is equipped to blend crude oil and be connected to an existing jetty which can handle vessels up to VLCC (Very Large Crude Carrier) size. To date, the terminal has successfully handled 10 vessels.
A possible expansion would bring the total capacity of the terminal to 2.1 million m3 (13.2 million bbl) of storage capacity.
Dirk Exalto, CEO Oiltanking MOGS Saldanha, comments: “With the completion of this project we offer a new range of services in terms of crude oil logistics. I would like to thank our first moving clients entrusting us with the handling of their valuable products. The project would not have been successful without the teamwork displayed by all parties involved. I would specifically like to thank WBHO, as our main contractor, as well as the subcontractors, all other stakeholders and Oiltanking MOGS Saldanha colleagues for the hard work that made us reach this milestone in a joint effort.”
