Alexandria Chemicals Bulk Terminal started operation in 2010 & is the only chemical tank farm on the Mediterranean Sea, in Egypt. Strategically located, the terminal caters to the import & export of bulk chemicals to the Egyptian & North African industries.
The terminal has 14 tanks with a capacity of 16,000m3. It can accommodate products with both low & high flashpoints, under the highest safety & environmental standards (NFPA3, API 650, ISO 9001 & OHSAS 18000).
A large expansion, due for completion in June 2014, will add a further 13 atmospheric storage tanks, to reach a total capacity of 55,000m3.
Tanks are equipped with measuring & controlling devices, as well as alarm & fire fighting equipment. In order to protect the environment, the tanks are surrounded with well-isolated concrete dikes to contain any accidental spillage from going into the sewage system, underground water or into the sea.
A drumming facility is operating, as well as truck-loading gantries.
This modern facility enables Obegi Chemicals to complement their services in the sourcing & distribution of chemicals.
