25th Anniversary Caldic Chemie Europoort
Back in 1991 Caldic opened up a new plant – Caldic Chemie in Europoort – and that means that this year, we are celebrating 25 years in Europoort. Nowadays, Chemie produces formaldehyde at the Europoort site, along with its derivatives paraformaldehyde and hexamethylenetratremine, and we’ve create a storage facility with a total capacity of 175,000 m3! Besides storage of our own products fuel grade bio-ethanol and methanol, a large part of the thank park is rented to third parties for storage.
With its own jetty and a deep channel to ensure that ships are not dependent on the tide, the location can accommodate seagoing vessels up to a maximum length of 250 metres. Its central location in the Netherlands, and ready access to the European highway and rail networks simplifies the logistics of moving goods from Europoort to locations all over the world.
The Anniversary did not go by unnoticed: on Tuesday, June 28, the Caldic’s quarter century in Europoort was enthusiastically feted with pies, balloon arches and decorations. We are proud of this milestone and grateful for all the effort, commitment and dedication of all our colleagues who helped to make the past 25 years a great success!
