OPTARA (OPtimization of The Antwerp-Rotterdam-Amsterdam area) is a refining project worth approximately 700 million euro.
RollDock was contracted to ship a total of 13 modules, which need to be shipped over 3 voyages from Tarragona, Spain to Antwerp, Belgium.
The first shipment by RollDock involved 4 modules which were loaded and discharged by a RO-RO operation.
2 of these modules of approx. 1,000mt, were the heaviest of the entire project as well as a record for Total Antwerp, the refinery company.
The overall project consists of 28 modules, totalling more than 85,000 cu m.
