DUBAI, UAE: RSA-Talke has opened the first phase of its integrated chemicals hub in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone with an official ceremony. The facility is unique in the region in terms of the standards and the range of services offered and complements the existing state-of-the-art hazardous materials warehousing capacities in Dubai South.

The centrepiece of the inaugurated first phase of the chemicals hub is storage and transhipment capacity for up to 1,800 TEU (twenty foot equivalent unit) – designed for empty or laden ISO tank containers with class 3, 6, 8 and 9 hazardous substances or non-hazardous chemicals. In addition to the purpose built warehouses in Dubai South, which were constructed in accordance with international safety and environmental standards, RSA-Talke also offers cleaning, maintenance, inspection and certification services for ISO tank containers.

The complex is part of a comprehensive, modern chemical logistics centre in Dubai, an important transit hub for the region. In its second and final phase of development, plants for drumming hazardous and non-hazardous liquid chemicals will be constructed at the site, as well as a warehouse for packed products.

Hence, RSA-Talke supplements and expands the existing equally ultra-modern warehouses for hazardous and non-hazardous chemical and petrochemical products in Dubai South.

“As the chemical and petrochemical companies here in the Gulf region increase their degree of vertical integration, their demand for comprehensive, professional specialist logistics services is increasing too,” said Richard Heath, director at RSA-Talke.

“In making this investment, we are supporting the diversification and growth of our customers by providing high-quality, reliable and safe services all from a single source and further cements Jebel Ali and Dubai’s position as a chemicals hub,” said Abhishek Ajay Shah, who is also a director at RSA-Talke.

“We are delighted to be a part of RSA-Talke’s remarkable growth in the region. The new facility will enable them to serve customers more efficiently and achieve even greater successes in the future. I extend my best wishes to all the employees of RSA-Talke and we remain fully supportive of the company’s development,” said Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, chairman of DP World and chairman of Ports, Customs & Free Zone Corporation.
