The transport and logistics company HOYER, Hamburg, has opened the doors to extended storage and transhipment facilities for hazardous goods in the logistics centre on the site of the chemical park Dormagen.
With storage lots for 300 loaded 20-feet containers and 8.900 tons of hazardous goods, capacities have almost been doubled. After a time-consuming approval procedure this now marks the end of construction work on the large-size plant, which was opened in 2002 after completion of the first stage.
The storage area is equipped with several steel-enforced concrete beds, lined up one behind the other. Storage lots are divided by fireproof walls. Storage is feasible for products with temperatures up to 120 °C. All lots are equipped with connections for hot-water, oil or steam heating of the containers.
HOYER has permission for the storage of classified dangerous goods (subject to GefStoffV), inflammable liquids (subject to VbF), material listed as a group or single item in amendment I. of the Ordinance Regulating Hazardous Goods, as well as goods classified in the Water Resources Management Law (WHG).
