Dutch storage company Eurotank Amsterdam (ETA) – part of VTTI – is converting gas oil tanks into storage for biofuels, mixed biofuels and hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), VTTI announced on 22 May.

The project followed a successful pilot project and would lead to a total capacity of 75,000m³, the company said, with the first phase expected to be commissioned at the end of this year.

ETA would also be developing the infrastructure for these sustainable fuels, VTTI said, with jetties and loading arms due to be upgraded this year and a new truck loading station to be built.

The company said the project would create a sustainable logistics hub and its location in the Port of Amsterdam meant it would be well connected by ship, truck and train to Europe and the rest of the world.
