UK-based Oikos Storage Limited has berthed the first major ship on the Thames Estuary following the completion of its deepwater jetty.

The 76,580 dwt tanker BW Seine berthed at the new jetty earlier this month.

The Oikos Jetty 2 is capable of accommodating larger product carriers of up to 120,000 dwt with its 14.5 metres draft.

Oikos Storage explained that the construction of the new jetty is part of a strategic expansion “designed to meet growing customer demand following refinery closures and the increased reliance on fuel imports to the UK.”

Oikos is located 38 miles east of London on the Thames Estuary providing a convenient ingress point into the UK from the Antwerp-Rotterdam-Amsterdam region.
