A state-of-the-art new tankpit at Alkion Terminal Le Havre
The new Tankpit 22 offers 33,000 CBM of storage capacity in 24 tanks and became operational early in 2021. It is tailor-made for high value heated products such as additives and lubricants. Tanks are insulated and heated to the advanced and rigorous standards expected by customers today.
A smooth transition and collaboration
The decision to build the new tankpit was taken in 2017 following the decision to close Alkion Terminal Sotrasol in the old port of Le Havre. The closure of the Sotrasol terminal meant a loss of storage capacity that would negatively impact the supply chain of some Alkion customers.
Within this context, the tankpit was purposefully designed to provides a forward-thinking solution that seamlessly migrated customers to Alkion Terminal Le Havre, around 10 km from the Sotrasol terminal. Working with customers to deliver a state-of-the-art infrastructural solution that adhered to their demanding standards and procedures was a great privilege and underscores Alkion’s conviction that it all starts with our firm belief that ‘Listening is everything’
