Euro Tank Terminal Rotterdam, also known as ETT, was founded in 2006 and started with one tank pit for fuel oil storage. Now, 18 years later, ETT is a complete, multi-customer terminal, capable of handling the largest seagoing vessels as well as smaller coasters, barges, trains, trucks and pipeline connectivity.

‘A key advantage of the terminal is that it can handle a wide range of ship sizes, from VLCC-size, to coasters and barges. The fuel storage sector will still need both large vessels as well as smaller parcels
coming in, even with all the changes to come due to the energy transition and from changes in product flows worldwide,’ says Frans Jan Hellenthal, commercial and business development at VTTI.

Euro Tank Terminal is highly automated, which makes it efficient and flexible and enables further digitalisation to take place. ETT intends to leverage this by making maximum use of existing and new
to be developed tools and software.

‘As of now, further improvements and projects are underway to push forward our own energy use and emissions, enabling the terminal to reach net-zero by 2042,’ explains Hellenthal. ‘Next to that, our main drivers are pushing into the future fuels and new energies space in which we leverage our global knowledge and experience.’

During StocExpo 2024 in Rotterdam, ETT will be hosting an exclusive terminal tour taking place on day zero: March 11. The StocExpo conference and exhibition then opens on March 12.

‘ETT is a versatile and diverse terminal, however with a compact footprint that is efficiently managed and operated,’ says Hellenthal on what to expect on the tour.
