Lined tank containers play a critical role in the safe transportation of the most sensitive chemicals without risk to the products or tanks, where the internal lining protects the interior of the tank container against corrosion or pitting.

Moerdijk depot, situated in the logistics hub of the Netherlands, is leading advancements in tank container maintenance, with a specific focus on inspection and repair of the internal linings of tank containers. The depot has developed a strategic initiative aimed at enhancing the integrity and longevity of these special tank containers.


Lined tank containers are essential assets in the logistics industry, providing a secure means of transporting hazardous materials such as corrosive chemicals. These products encompass various product groups, including acid chlorides and chloroformates such as methylchloroformate, ethylchloroformate, and chloroacetylchloride. Additionally, acids like hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid are commonly handled within these containers, necessitating meticulous attention to safety and maintenance protocols. Beyond these, lined tank containers also facilitate the secure transport of other critical substances like quad and quab products, iron(II) chloride, potassium chloride, and citric acid, further highlighting their indispensable role in the global chemical supply chain. 

Ensuring the integrity of lined tank containers requires specialised expertise and resources. Moerdijk depot has responded to this challenge by establishing a dedicated workshop equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed with skilled professionals trained in the complexities of lined tank container maintenance.

At the core of Moerdijk depot's innovative approach is the use of heat curing, a method that ensures thorough and effective repairs to internal linings. Each container undergoes a specialised inspection process, which typically requires a long time frame, during which any defects are meticulously identified and fixed using specialised heatcured coating repair method in strict accordance with industry standards.

In addition to its repair capabilities, Moerdijk depot offers comprehensive inspection services and detailed damage reports. These services provide clients with valuable insights and tailored solutions to optimise the performance and safety of their lined tank containers.
