Dutch independent liquids storage operator Standic BV is in the process of obtaining ISO 22000 certification for food safety management systems. Standic said it was aiming to offer part of its tank storage according to this international standard before the end of this year, enabling customers to store food ingredients at its terminal in Dordrecht seaport in the Netherlands.

The company offers liquids storage – including chemicals, biofuels and lubricants – and recently expanded facilities for oleochemicals at its new Tank Pit 7, which has 36,000m² of storage divided over 43 stainless steel tanks in different sizes.

The tanks each have their own line, pump and loading arm, making cross contamination impossible. They also have capacity for iso-container parking and heating together with tank features such as heating and mixing of chemicals on site.

Standic commercial director Paul Voogt said: “The market for oleochemicals storage is increasing and we also see a growing demand from our customers.”

With 230,500m³ of storage capacity and 163 tanks, Standic provides storage for liquids including oleochemicals, biofuels and lubricants.

Sited at Dordrecht sea port – between the harbour area of Rotterdam and Antwerp – Standic has direct access to the North Sea and provides a transit path by road, rail and inland waterway to the Ruhr Area.
