Palermo Tanks terminal up and running in Colombia
The first phase of the Palermo Tanks terminal project in the port of Barranquilla, Colombia has been completed and is operational, Houston-based Zenith Energy announced. Zenith, an international liquids and bulk terminal company, has partnered with Colombian marine transportation and logistics firm Grupo Coremar on the project, which the companies claim will be the most modern multiproduct liquids facility of its kind in the country. The first incoming shipment of refined products has been received and is being distributed to the Colombian market by truck. Initially the facility – including two storage tanks, a dock and infrastructure – will have capacity of 352,000 barrels for refined products and crude oil storage. http://splash247.com/palermo-tanks-terminal-running-colombia/

A new, 528,000-barrel refined products and crude oil storage terminal is to be built at the Port of Barranquilla, Colombia. Latin American terminals group Grupo Coremar and midstream energy company Zenith Energy have been awarded a construction contract for the first phase of the terminal. Included will be a new 50,000 dwt ship dock, 6-lane truck racks, as well as accompanying infrastructure. Palermo Tanks will hold a permitted storage of up to 2.5 million barrels for third party merchant storage, allowing for the acceptance of clean products, crude, asphalt, vegetable oil, and petrochemical streams, to and from a 50,000 dwt dock with approximately 12.5m of draft alongside. The facility is being constructed within Grupo Coremar’s 426-acre Palermo Port Society development; the Port offers a variety of dry, break bulk and liquids services.
