RSA-Talke opens JAFZA chemicals hub

RSA-Talke has celebrated completion of the first phase of its integrated chemicals hub in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone with an official ceremony.

The company says the facility is unique in the region in terms of the standards and the range of services offered and complements the existing state-of- the-art hazardous materials warehousing capacities in Dubai South.

The centrepiece of the inaugurated first phase of the hub is storage and transhipment capacity for up to 1,800 TEU – designed for empty or laden tank containers with class 3, 6, 8 and 9 hazardous substances or non-hazardous chemicals. In addition to the purpose-built warehouses in Dubai South, which were constructed in accordance with international safety and environmental standards, RSA-Talke also offers cleaning, maintenance, inspection and certification services for ISO tanks.

The complex is part of a comprehensive, modern chemical logistics centre in Dubai, an important transit hub for the region. In its second and final phase of development, plants for drumming hazardous and non-hazardous liquid chemicals will be constructed at the site, as well as a warehouse for packed products. RSA-Talke will supplement and expand the existing warehouses for hazardous and non-hazardous chemical and petrochemical products in Dubai South.
