OVET Expands Vlissingen Terminal
The stevedoring company OVET B.V. is delighted to announce the 3-hectare expansion of its Kaloothaven terminal in Vlissingen. As a result of this expansion, OVET will soon be occupying an area of 34 hectares. This expansion fits in perfectly with OVET’s strategy of, on the one hand, continuing to diversify the product mix of various bulk and breakbulk goods, and on the other hand, offering greater added value and an even wider range of added-value activities to its portfolio of long-standing customers.
Vincent Courtois, Managing Director of OVET explains: “By offering added-value activities, such as screening and blending, OVET has managed to keep the volumes generated by the processing industry stable over recent years. In addition, the efforts the company has made in terms of its diversification strategy are also paying off. By successfully attracting new cargo flows, our terminal space has been in constant demand in 2019. The logical step was therefore to continue to expand the terminal. However, 20% of the volumes are now no longer linked to the processing industry. As a result, OVET is in a good position to adapt to the developments brought about by the energy transition.”
The first works in Vlissingen started in Week 43 with the installation of drainage. In Week 50 the site should be completely tarmacked for the high-quality and environmentally responsible storage of bulk goods. For these works Ovet has selected a highly reputable partner from Zeeland.
