Stolthaven Terminals Brazil celebrates 40 years

Stolthaven Terminals Brazil marked a milestone 40 years of operations in October and celebrated with an event for customers, suppliers and industry stakeholders.

The celebration was compered by local TV presenter Natalie Nanini and featured special guest speaker, Amyr Klink (pictured left, centre), Brazilian explorer, sailor and writer, who spoke about the challenges he has overcome and the determination he has needed during his many expeditions. Guests received a copy of his book with a special commemorative cover.

In his speech, Marcelo Schmitt, General Manager of Stolthaven Terminals Brazil (pictured above, far right), spoke of the reputation the terminal has established for excellence in service, consistently high safety standards and a strong focus on sustainability.

He said: “I am proud to participate in the celebration of 40 years of Stolthaven Terminals in Brazil. It´s a history of pioneering achievements and passion to exceed our customers’ expectations every day with a team of dedicated and committed professionals.”

Guy Bessant, President of Stolthaven Terminals (pictured above, far left), also attended the event: “Stolthaven Terminals’ mission is to be the most respected global storage provider and, over its 40 years in operation, our Santos facility has been committed to putting that goal into practice. It was recently recognised by two customers for its service and safety excellence, which is testament to the dedication and hard work of the team and of the cooperative spirit in which they work with customers. I was delighted to be able to attend the celebrations and mark this milestone.”

In October, the terminal received Dow Chemicals' Best Terminal in Brazil award and last year it was named Brazil’s number-one bulk liquid terminal by energy company and leader in biofuels, Raízen.

In September this year, the terminal started operating its own nitrogen-generation plant, the first in a port terminal in Brazil and a global first for the company. And in March, it signed a memorandum of understanding with the Pecém Industrial and Port Complex for the study of a new storage terminal that will focus on providing storage and handling services for green hydrogen and associated products.
