cotac joint venture begins operations

The new cotac site in Ludwigshafen, Kaiserwörthhafen, is the first facility of the Multimodal Tank Care joint venture – a partnership between the cotac group and Contargo – to become operational.

cotac offers certified quality standards for cleaning, repairing and maintaining tank containers at 12 locations worldwide.

In Ludwigshafen, the full service also includes cleaning and workshop services for tank containers measuring up to 52 feet.

It is the first location of its kind with a trimodal transport connection. At the chemicals hub in Ludwigshafen, the cotac operation primarily cleans tank containers that were loaded with dangerous goods or harmless chemical products.

The cleaning operation complies with the EFTCO standard (European Federation of Tank Cleaning Organisations) and is audited and certified. Up to 20,000 cleanings and 7,000 repairs can be carried out annually. Periodic maintenance and modifications also take place in the workshops.
