Hoyer to enlarge tank container facility in Dormagen, Germany

Feb. 10, 2016

Hamburg, Germany-based Hoyer is planning to expand its container terminal at the Chempark in Dormagen. The new terminal is scheduled for completion in January 2017 and should enable storage capacity to be enlarged by 624 tank containers.

Hoyer has already submitted the corresponding approval documents to the relevant Cologne district government and expects publication of the application pursuant to the German Federal Pollution Control Act in the near future.

The container terminal is needed for supply and disposal to/from the production operations in the Chempark. Ulrich Grätz, Hoyer’s director of supply chain solutions, says: “It goes without saying that the new terminal will meet the highest safety standards. Among other things it will have bunds and a fire alarm and extinguishing system.”

The hazardous substance classes that are to be stored remain unchanged. The investment volume amounts to several million euros. Hoyer will create around five new jobs by expanding the container terminal.

The planned enlargement will cause scarcely any additional traffic load at the Chempark entrance gates, since the majority of the transportation will take place within the works. Chempark’s manager Dr Ernst Grigat stresses the project’s importance for the locality: “The producer companies will also continue to make substantial investments in the business operations, and for that they need well-developed logistics. That’s why we are delighted with Hoyer’s plans, because they support Chempark’s integrated logistics.”
