Greenfield HES Hartel Tank Terminal
HES International B.V. in Rotterdam is a private holding company of leading independent service providers in ports throughout Europe. The company has two main cornerstones: dry and wet bulk. The development plan for the Hartelstrook location in Rotterdam offers space for the development of a bulk terminal. Within HES International B.V. there is a need for further development in the field of wet bulk. The Hartelstrook location lends itself perfectly to a new terminal due to its perfect nautical outcrop and a direct connection to the open sea for faster handling of logistics activities.
The Port of Rotterdam Authority’s vision is to make the best possible use of the available space within the existing port area. HES International B.V.’s business case concerns the development of a new tank terminal for the storage and transshipment of oil products and biofuels. The location of the tank terminal is planned on the Hartelstrook, which is located on the south side of the Mississippi dock on Maasvlakte 1.
BP, the internationally operating energy company and owner of a large refinery in Rotterdam, is committed to the project, which includes plans for pipeline connections between the refinery and the terminal. Fifty-two tanks with a storage capacity of approximately 1.3 million m3 are to be built on the 27-hectare site.
HES approached KH Engineering in 2017 for the value engineering of the existing design. In value engineering, various functionalities are tested in the design and the project objectives, including budget and planning, are assessed.
Together with the client, the existing estimate was revised and approved after the value engineering. In March 2018, the value engineering was delivered including a report with various findings and recommendations.
After completion of the value engineering, the order was given for the basic engineering. This means that we make a complete technical design for the client in which all starting points are established. This technical design is suitable to start the detailed engineering and the construction (execution). The DCMR environmental permit was taken into account in the design. In addition, the budget has been adjusted, which further increases the accuracy of the budget. The basic engineering was completed in December 2018.
In 2019, KH Engineering started with the detailed engineering, in order to be able to tender the project in the market for civil and mechanical engineering works in particular.
With KH Engineering as a local company, the client has a service provider that can continue to support all project phases and is able to move with the business case and the client’s strategy on tendering in the international market.
