Evos launches in Hamburg: Important member of Hamburg port business community changes ownershipToday, Evos Hamburg announces its change of ownership following the sale of the Vopak Dupeg Terminal Hamburg to First State Investments, the international arm of First Sentier Investors. The tank terminal established in Wilhelmsburg in 1953, offers capacity for 149 tanks and a total capacity of 670,000 cbm for various liquid products.

As a gateway to Northern, Eastern and South- Eastern Europe and with its excellent transport connections, Hamburg will continue to be an important hub for the storage of liquid products.”

This terminal benefits from a diversified portfolio of liquid products and renowned world-class storage and handling services. It provides an excellent fit with First State's long-term infrastructure investment philosophy.
