Turnarounds & shutdowns

Chemical site managers are working hard to reduce maintenance downtime during a turnaround (TAR). Den Hartogh can assist in the challenge to work around the clock, first time right and in a short period of time. Our operational teams, managed by experienced project supervisors are ready to perform all the logistics of bulk chemicals relating to your company’s TAR projects.

If the scope of work changes during the project, we don’t back down. With our large fleet of containers, our strong organisation and extensive partner network, we are set to meet the challenges as we continue to finalise the turnaround project on time. We will set your plant up for even bigger success in the future.


Den Hartogh has a partnership with Sea Invest at their ACOT Terminal in Antwerp. The terminal has close-by links to the Motorway Network in addition to waterside and rail connectivity. The terminal is open 15 hours per day, but also nights for some traffic flows. Current services at the facility, loaded/empty container storage, repairs, fitting of liners, decanting and vacuuming overweight into Octabins.

We do not want to disrupt the supply chain by adding additional movements (costs). We have ongoing discussions with our barge and shipping partners to link outbound and inbound freight. Our vision is to have day and/or night loadings and drop the boxes. These boxes can then be:
2.Decanted into silo trailers
3.Moved further within the Den Hartogh Supply chain via barge to Moerdijk, Genk or Rotterdam (for further distribution to UK, Ireland as example)
