Van Leeuwen
Tank terminal in Rotterdam

Tank terminal in Rotterdam

In the Botlek area, outside of Rotterdam, a brand new tank storage facility has been built for the storage of oil and biofuel products. Van Leeuwen supplied all piping material for this facility, which has a total storage capacity of 1,3 million m3. The scope of delivery included over 80 km of seamless and welded pipes to ASTM and API, and approximately 45,000 fittings and flanges.

But this was not all. Temporary storage was needed during the project, for which our vast storage area in Zwijndrecht came to good use. Extra challenges were thrown to the project team when the coronavirus broke out during this project. Our extensive stocks, our international network of suppliers and our good relationships with subsuppliers helped to minimize delays in the supply chain.

Big projects like these have a span of several years, so excellent project management is key. A dedicated project team took take care of expediting, transport of deliveries, material inspections and tests, solving technical issues en organizing regular progress meetings with the customer.

With projects like these we prove that we are more than just a stockist and supplier of pipe and tube material. And that our slogan "Van Leeuwen - more than tubes" is not a hollow phrase!
