Stolt Tank Containers and YBA Kanoo, the joint owners of Kanoo Tank Services (Sahreej), opened their new tank container cleaning, inspection and repair facility in Jubail, Saudi Arabia in March.
Sahreej purchased the assets of the tank cleaning division of Kanoo Terminal Services (KTS) in 2015, which had been running tank cleaning operations for 24 years. Sahreej has since upgraded the facilities to the world class standards of the joint venture partners. The key targets were to improve the volume, service quality and scope of the work provided and to ‘cater for the enormous opportunities that will arise as Sadara comes on line’.
In December 2015, Sahreej was awarded 100,000 sq m of land in the Royal Commission Logistics Area in Jubail, opposite SATORP refinery and the giant Sadara petrochemical complex. The Sahreej plot is adjacent to the new Saudi Arabian Railway Co rail line, presenting an opportunity for a rail siding into Sahreej.
The new Jubail depot replaces Sahreej’s previous depot in Jubail and complements the company’s other tank container depots in Dammam and Jeddah. If you wish to read the rest of this feature please visit https://www.tankcontainermedia.com/subscribe/
