Global Petro Storage (GPS) and Port of Amsterdam have entered an agreement to develop a railcar connection on the land located adjacent to GPS’s existing 11-tank gasoline and bioguel storage and blending facility.
GPS intends to develop a rail connection to the public network and to points across Europe that will increase its efficiency and offerings to clients.
The sustainable transport development complements Port of Amsterdam’s strategy, which endorses the importance of good rail connections to and from the Amsterdam port region.
Peter Vucins, Director of EMEA at GPS, says the expansion will enable GPS to capture future opportunities. The first step has been taken by asking for permits for the railcar connection.
Peter Vucins said: “This agreement enables GPS to continue the successful expansion program that began when we acquired the terminal in late 2016, including adding significant gasoline capacity to our current terminal, which will come on stream in the second half of this year.”
GPS has its headquarters in Singapore, and has partners and projects around the world.
