Hoyer mixes it with Telene
France-based Telene SAS has awarded a five-year contract to German logistics service provider Hoyer covering the mixing, filling and distribution of special raw materials for the plastics industry.
Telene SAS and its Japanese parent company Rimtec specialise in the manufacturing, processing and distribution of DCPD (dicyclopentadiene)-formulated resins, which are used in a variety of applications such as body panels for trucks, construction and agricultural equipment and buses, as well as advanced domestic waste water treatment units and critical parts exposed to highly corrosive environments.
The resins, which are classified as dangerous goods, are manufactured in Japan and are currently shipped to Europe in intermediate bulk containers (IBCs). After use by Telene’s customers, the IBCs are shipped back to Japan.
Under the new contract, Hoyer will build and operate a special filling and mixing plant at the premises of its wholly-owned subsidiary European Liquid Drumming bv (ELD) in the Dutch town of Oosterhout.
After completion of the new plant, up to 10,000t of DCPD resins and all additives required will be shipped annually from Japan in tank containers and mixed in Oosterhout before being filled into IBCs and stored for Telene’s European customers.
The mixing and filling plant is being designed by Hoyer in compliance with the latest safety, environment and quality standards and tailored to Telene SAS’s IBCs. Compared to standard 1.000 litre units, the Telene IBCs have double the overall height, but the same base area, and a volume of 2,000 litres each. Start-up of the operation is scheduled for September.
