Midroc Rodoverken and INBAP have entered an agreement for the construction of a new fuel and liquid chemicals storage terminal
The new storage facility will be located in Małaszewicze, a town in Poland's eastern region close to the Belarus border. 90% of goods imported from China to Europe via rail go through this strategic location near what is known as the Silk Road 2.0, a new trade route between Europe and China through Central Asia.
The investment fund INBAP understands the strategic importance of Małaszewicze as a vital link between China and Western Europe and is, therefore, investing in transhipment terminals in the area. Thanks to its access to European and Russian rail systems, the storage terminal in Małaszewicze will facilitate transportation and storage of fuel and liquid chemicals between Russia and the EU. The subsidiary INBAP Terminal was formed in 2015 to manage the terminal business.
Midroc Rodoverken has taken responsibility for the design, procurement and pre-fabrication of material. Midroc will also carry on on-site vessel construction, operational testing, painting and, in some instances, insulation. Also, Midroc Rodoverken will procure and install the necessary instruments, stairs, platforms, rails and carry out required tests to satisfy proposal specifications and government certificates.
Preliminary construction work is scheduled to begin in May 2021, completing the first stage in the first half of 2022.
The project will consist of several stages. The first stage involves constructing a 32,000 m³ diesel tank, a 9,000 m³ vessel for methanol, two 5,000 m³ diesel tanks, and a 200 m³ vessel for diesel storage. Stage two will include constructing a 32,000 m³ tank for diesel, six 500 m³ chemical containers and ten 200 m³ tanks for chemicals and propane.
INBAP's assignment also entails extensive infrastructure such as transhipment, power distribution, roads and other construction activities.
