Geldof shipped the first 26 tanks for the Vopak tank terminal in Vlaardingen (The Netherlands). The complete contract includes the construction of 52 tanks of which a large number is isolated. The full order is good for somewhat 3.750.000 kg of metal construction.
Each shipping moment consists of 5 shippings and takes about two weeks. For this activity two ships are used. Once the tanks are placed in their whole onto the ship, they are on the water for approximately 18 hours before arriving at the terminal in Vlaardingen where they will be installed directly onto the site. The second series of 26 tanks will be shipped to Vlaardingen later this year.
