Moerdijk Tankcontainer Repair receives Depot Excellence Award 2020
We are proud to announce that EXSIF WORLDWIDE has recently expressed it's appreciation for the dedictation and partnership of our subsidiary company Moerdijk Tankcontainer Repair (also known as MTR) while taking care of the periodic testing, maintenance and repair of their ISO tanks.
Building partnerships is one of the core values of our group of companies and has proven to be successful even in challenging times like these.
We would like to return the favor and express our appreciation for this value partner of ours.
New Services added: heating of acrylic acid & storage of waste
We are pleased to announce that we have extended our services by obtaining a permit for intermediate storage of ISO-tanks containing waste materials in bulk.
This enables us to serve customers with a demand for intermediate storage of their waste products and completes our abiltity to transport waste in bulk.
Furthermore, we would like to share with you, that we are currently running trials on a brand new installation that was especially designed to heat Acrylic Acid in the safest way possible.
Acrylic Acid is a product with a very small margin between the desired temperature and the point of polymerisation, for that reason regular heating by means of steam or hot-water is considered unsafe.
The installation is expected to be up and running in a few weeks from now.
