With our unique location in the Port of Rotterdam, we provide efficient and reliable services to ship owners, charterers, traders and port agents. We offer multiple facilities at our jetties and a total quay length of over 450 meters, including ship-to-ship transhipments (STS), layby, utility services and a modern 240,000 m3 tank storage facility. ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS and ISPS certified, our utility services include steam supply (tank heating) and nitrogen supply (tank purging / blanketing).

STR was created in 2003 within a maritime holding, starting with STS , layby and utility services at the former waste treatment plant at the 'Tweede Werkhaven'. Our first tank park (TP100) has been in operations since 2005 with a storage capacity of 65,000 cbm. After developing the business, we experienced capacity constraints and expanded storage capacity in 2012 with an additional 175,000 cbm in our second tank park (TP200). The expansion provided us with more flexibility thanks to state of the art technologies utilised.

iCON Infrastructure acquired 100% of STR in April 2015. Together, iCON and STR's management are determined to maximise our opportunities
