When you visit the Laurenshaven terminal, you can’t miss the immense new building on the site. Over the past year, builders have made a massive effort to realise another new warehouse facility. Our new addition has a capacity of no less than 126,000 m3, which brings EBS’ total storage capacity to 650,000 m3.

Open for business

The Boreas coaster was the first vessel to take advantage of the new warehouse when it was unloaded on Wednesday, 20 February 2019. Around 1,400 tonnes of bauxite was weighed and then transferred to the new bulk storage warehouse by the certified Gottwald 6 crane.

Unique concept

The high-quality multi-purpose storage warehouse features several separate compartments, to keep storage shipments clean, dry, and free from contamination. A unique system of hatches developed in-house allows the crane operator to open and close a roof hatch with the press of a single button, in order to guarantee the quality of the products. The convenient location on the quay allows bulk goods to be unloaded directly from the ship to the warehouse.
