News and more


Welcome at HHTT, also in these extraordinary times

The coronavirus is significantly impacting our daily lives. Both your safety and that of our employees is always our number one priority. For that reason, we closely adhere to the government measures regarding the coronavirus.

We are compliant with the applicable guidelines that are essential at our terminals. Let's help each other get through these times as best as we can. Thank you for your support and understanding.


Prevention of accidents and incidents is part of our core values and executed by employees and contractors. The total design of the terminal and the choices we make are all  focused on building the safest terminal possible. In the unlikely event of an incident, we have a sound emergency plan ready and we are a voluntary member of the industrial Fire Brigade.


The state-of-the-art terminal is being constructed according to the PGS 29 regulations and guidelines and fulfils the highest environmental and safety standards. HHTT is ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 certified. 


We strongly and proactively focus on sustainability. We are constantly alert to the potential environmental impact our activities may have. Exactly for this reason, we have implemented a number of effective measures, such as:

  • Shore power for inlands vessels.
  • A state of the art vapour processing plant for minimalizing evaporation of product fumes that could occur during operations. The terminal is also connected to the e-Noses odour network for extra supervision. 
  • The use of low-noise equipment and electronically controlled pumps.
  • LED Lighting.
