The Board of Directors of Vopak Terquimsa has approved the start of the engineering works for the development of the fourth phase of expansion of its capacity at the chemicals quay in the Port of Tarragona, Spain.

This fourth phase will involve the construction of an additional 37,000 m3, dedicated to the storage of chemical products, often for circular economy projects and the energy transition. Construction is expected to begin throughout the year 2024, once the corresponding permits have been obtained.

The facility is expected to be operational in the last quarter of 2026.
