Koole Terminals has expanded its renewable storage tanks in Liverpool, UK, positioning itself as a major player in the energy transition.

With an experienced and well-oiled team, Koole converted and prepared four storage tanks for a leading international client in record time. These are Koole’s first tanks prepared specifically to store sustainable renewable feedstock.

Koole offers flexibility with these new tanks by also providing a buffer for fluctuations in supply and demand. ‘At the right time, a suitable customer arrived to deploy the project for,’ says Virgil Veira, sales manager Multi-Product Terminals (MPT), at Koole. In consultation with the customer, further specific modifications were made to tailor the project. For example, when converting and adapting the storage tanks, ship pumps, unloading points and the right insulation were added. ‘We as a team are very proud of the result,’ agrees Ronald Thonissen, operations manager MPT.

This supply chain solution is an example of how Koole’s service becomes an integral part of renewable fuel production. Veira adds: ‘The added value for our customer is that they now have access to UK feedstock to collect and safely store UCO (used cooking oil) in bulk.’

‘The solution provided also offers a means to filter the collected oil, making it easier to process in their factories,’ says Ronald Thonissen, operations manager MPT.

The whole operation progressed smoothly due to the team’s commitment. ‘Everyone was immediately excited and motivated by this project,’ says Veira. ‘We met all the deadlines and stayed on budget.’ Looking back on the project, Thonissen is especially proud of how the entire operation was executed: ‘Working with the highest standards in quality and safety is paramount in everything we do, for our people and customers. In addition, this project suits Koole Tankstorage Liverpool’s vision and strategy exceptionally well. For it to turn out so well, is very promising.’
