Alkion Terminal Marseille has opened what it says is the first tank container storage platform in the region.
The platform is located between the Marseille and Fos-sur-Mer container terminals and is accessible via road and rail.
“Not having to open the tank in order to store or transport the product greatly reduces the risk of leakage,” said Aurélien Jakalski, sales engineer and project developer.
“This is especially important when working with hazardous substances such as toxic, flammable or corrosive products.
“Alkion’s expertise regarding these specific products is one of the reasons why we were able to obtain the necessary government authorization for the platform. This puts Alkion Terminal Marseille in a unique position, not only in the South of France but the entire Southern European region, as the only Seveso-site in the area with the capability and authorization to handle and store ISO tank containers.”
