chemfidence expands tank capacity for methanol

chemfidence invests in an additional tank for Methanol at Industriepark Höchst

chemfidence, the supply specialist for raw materials, solvents, chemicals and high-value MRO, is expanding its tank capacity for methanol at Industriepark Höchst by 6000 m3, with the addition of another tank to improve methanol supply at the Höchst site even during periods of low or high water

Within the solvadis group, methanol is distributed through various channels. From the tank-storages, especially in Rotterdam, barges transport this important raw material to the regional storages of solvadis at the river Rhine and Main - and especially to the industrial park in Höchst.

The phenomenon of low-water is increasingly creating big problems to procure raw-materials. Availibility of barges is limited and often enough transport has to be shifted to alternative modes, i.e. to rail or road which additionally results into remarkable higher costs for such logistic.

Alois Strott, Managing Director of chemfidence: "With the additional tank, we are able to improve the supply of methanol at the Höchst site, even during periods of low water at competitive prices. The investment strengthens Höchst's production location and offers us and our customers an even better security in procurement and offers additionally economic advantages in international competition."
