The Port of Antwerp drew attention to massive investments that are being made at the Belgian port, with a new tanker terminal planned at the Delwaide dock, as well as a new independent container terminal.

The new tanker terminal represents an investment of EUR250 million (USD276 million), while the new container facility - which has been acquired by SEA-Invest from Independent Maritime Terminal (IMT) - will be moved from Hansa dock to Delwaide dock and developed with investment of EUR50 million (USD55 million). 

SEA-Invest subsidiary SEA-Tank Terminal will also build additional tank capacity for Total at the Hansa dock.

Meanwhile, a location has been found for Houston based international terminal operator Zenith Energy on the right bank of the Scheldt. The US company will invest a total of EUR250 million (USD276 million) in the port. 

"Thanks to the huge interest in the port area we have been able to select projects that offer the highest added value for the port area as a whole," said Antwerp Port Authority ceo Eddy Bruyninckx.

"The waterfront sites have been reserved for candidates that will generate large freight volumes and so make maximum use of the available maritime infrastructure. As for the non-waterfront sites we have opted for candidates that will help to further develop the chemical and petrochemical cluster."
