VAN Ommeran Tank Terminal of Holland and Tak Tank of Singapore have shown interest in a new nine billion rupees (about HK$2.2 billion) chemical terminal at the Jawaharalal Nehru Port.


According to Jawaharalal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) sources, Van Ommeran is setting up a wholly-owned subsidiary in India with a capital of US$8.6 million.


The Dutch firm, the world's second largest terminal tank operator, is also looking at the proposed chemical terminals of other ports in the country.


The transport ministry has already identified a number of projects for handling liquefied petroleum gas and chemicals at different ports.


Van Ommeran is also running a chemical terminal in Singapore.


Singapore-based Tak Tank also runs several terminals in different ports around the world.
