Storing vital products...

We store vital products that are vital for everyday life. The energy that allows people to turn on the lights, heat or cool their homes and for transportation. The chemicals that enable companies to manufacture millions of useful products. The edible oils to prepare food. As the global population is increasing, so is demand for vital products such as energy, food, and chemicals. We take pride in storing vital products with care, for a growing world population.  

Today’s world is seeing a profound transformation of energy and feedstocks. Our long-term success depends on our ability to innovate and respond to the changing demands of society and our markets. As such, Vopak is developing new infrastructure solutions that contribute to the global energy and feedstocks transition, ensuring businesses are provided with the storage and infrastructure they need. Today, we store chemicals, oil, gases, biofuels and edible oils. For the future, we are working towards the infrastructure solutions for new vital products such as zero and low carbon hydrogen, ammonia, CO2, biofuels, recycled chemicals as well as batteries. By 2030, we will have invested EUR 1 billion to grow our base in industrial and gas terminals and another EUR 1 billion to accelerate towards new energies and sustainable feedstocks.

...with care

We strive to be a responsible member of society and the communities we operate in, being mindful of the potential impact of our activities on people’s safety, health, on their wellbeing and on the environment.

Our Strategy - Shaping the future

Vopak is excited to be at the heart of the energy and feedstocks transition. It requires new supply chains, connecting supply and demand around the world. Our customers and partners play a key role in this transformation as they are large producers and users of energy and feedstocks. They count on us to help them optimize these new energy and feedstock flows for the benefit of
business and society.

As part of our strategic priorities we will grow our base in industrial and gas terminals and we will accelerate towards new energies and sustainable feedstocks.
