Tristar has begun construction of 10 new storage tanks for its chemical terminal in Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA) taken over from Shell in 2019. The construction of the storage tanks will see the storage capacity of the JAFZA chemical terminal increase from 5,505 CBM to 25,000 CBM.
Under the terms of the agreement, Shell will remain a customer. Eugene Mayne (3rd from left in photo), Group CEO of Tristar said: “We are pleased to announce the commencement of our expansion and modernization program for the JAFZA chemical terminal. When we acquired the facility in 2019, we invested in the UAE’s vision and its position as a significant logistics hub. The upgraded facility will be a turnkey and fully integrated distribution center that has the ability to handle bulk imports and packed chemical products at high volumes.”
