Mammoet eyes petrochemical contracts in Antwerp
Mammoet Belgium has opened a new facility in the Port of Antwerp to provide localized support to the region’s growing petrochemical and industrial sector.
The Port of Antwerp is home to the largest integrated oil and chemical cluster in Europe and the area has recently secured the biggest investment in the European chemical industry in the past two decades, with plans for a 3 billion euros propane dehydrogenisation plant and an ethane cracker unit to be built, Mammoet explains its decision.
In addition to the new dockside location, Mammoet says it has also “invested heavily” in new equipment and professionals to ensure they are well equipped to service customers in the region.
“We believe strongly in our capacity to grow in the Antwerp region,” says Paul Van Vuren, Managing Director for Mammoet Belgium. “It is our strategy to continuously build on our offering to our clients and deliver efficient and cost-effective solutions. We aim to achieve this in Antwerp by investing in people and resources to maximize the potential of our new dock-side location.”
