After the successful acquisition of IGMA by OBA in 2021 and subsequent acquisition of the remaining 25% of the shares in OBA Group by HES International, it is time for the next step. As of 1 November, both organizations will fully merge the operational and technical teams and continue under the name HES Bulk Terminal Amsterdam.

HES Bulk Terminal Amsterdam is the leading dry bulk terminal in the port of Amsterdam. Managing Director Jeroen van der Neut says: "The name has changed, but that certainly does not apply to our service, that we will continue keep at the highest level. Because of our new name and identity, it is now clear to everyone that we are part of the HES International group. We are looking forward to the opportunities this can create, also for new developments."

One of these new developments is the planned relocation of the ICL plant to the site of HES Bulk Terminal Amsterdam in the Westhaven. The term sheet for this was recently signed. After the acquisition of IGMA, this is an important step in the transformation towards a sustainable future.
