The consortium Boskalis, Van Hattum en Blankevoort and Mobilis is constructing a deep-sea quay, inland navigation quay and jetty for the new HES Hartel Tank Terminal on the Hartelstrook (Maasvlakte 1), on behalf of Port of Rotterdam Authority.

To enable the tank terminal to accommodate large oil tankers and inland vessels, the consortium is constructing a 1,200-metre quay wall for sea-going vessels, an 1,100-metre quay wall and a 350-metre jetty with four berths for inland vessels, as well as the necessary bank and seabed protection.

"Port of Rotterdam Authority started its part of the work in January 2018. The 600 mixed-in-place piles are now in place and the reinforcement work and concrete placements of the quay walls are in full swing. We need to have completed our work by the end of 2019 and we're on track," said Stefanie van der Wee, project manager Port Development Port of Rotterdam Authority.

The arrival of HES International B.V. on the Hartelstrook reflects Port of Rotterdam Authority's vision to optimise the use of the available space within the existing port area.
