Koole Tankstorage Pernis analyzes various investment options

Systems Navigator supports KTP in evaluating multiple investment scenarios aimed at optimizing customer service.

DELFT; February 25, 2021 – Koole Tankstorage Pernis (“KTP”) is located in the port of Rotterdam and stores multiple products, such as vegetable oils & fats, oleo-chemicals, base oils, waxes, biodiesel and easy chemicals. In order to be able to provide customers the best possible service in the future, without making any concessions to the existing operational flexibility, KTP is investigating multiple investment scenarios. In order to make a carefully considered decision, Systems Navigator was asked to simulate and analyze the effects of every scenario on foreseen terminal performance.

The project resulted in a thorough understanding of all investment scenarios, with a focus on various KPI’s, such as waiting times and berth occupancy. Systems Navigator is proud it helped KTP in selecting an investment plan that prepares the terminal to handle future logistical challenges.

According to KTP: “Cutting-edge tool for supporting our future investment decisions” – stated Gregory Slob, Optimization Manager at Koole Tankstorage Pernis.

On Systems Navigator side: “This project is another example of the power of simulation. I’m very happy we were able to support KTP in making an objective and quantified decision in selecting the best possible investment plan.” – stated Joost Smits, Commercial Manager at Systems Navigator.
