Stolthaven Houston’s new jetty on track
The new jetty, which is expected to be ready for layby berthing by September 1 will accommodate tankers of up to 50,000 deadweigh tonnes as well as barges to the east property of the terminal.
It will not only increase capacity and operational efficiency, but will also minimise waiting and turnaround times at the terminal as well as enhance ship-to-shore synergy, which will help to reduce supply-chain costs for customers.
Guy Bessant, president of Stolthaven Terminals, says: ‘Stolthaven operates as part of an integrated solutions provider, and because of that we understand better than most the dynamics of marine infrastructure and assets, and their impact on supply-chain efficiency.
‘The investments we are making in Stolthaven Houston will generate significant benefits for the customers of Stolt-Nielsen.’
