A multi-million pound infrastructure upgrade programme has been successfully completed at the Grays terminal on the River Thames, UK, which is part of Inter Terminals’ comprehensive bulk liquid storage network.
The optimisation project has increased throughput capacity, enabling the receipt and dispatch of increased volumes of fuels at significantly faster rates than previously possible at the terminal.
As part of the major infrastructure improvements, the terminal’s two existing jetties have been upgraded to accommodate larger vessels (up to 40 000 t).
In addition, new marine loading arms and mild steel pipelines have been installed which allow faster discharge of cargoes into storage. Road loading facilities at Grays have also been improved.
The Grays terminal specialises in the storage and handling of high and low flash fuels/petroleum products, including diesel, gas oil and kerosene. The facility has a total storage capacity of 310 489 m3 across 51 mild steel tanks.
