SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Stolthaven Terminals has begun construction at its Singapore dollar (S$)350m ($246m) chemical storage terminal on Jurong Island in the city state, a source from parent company Stolt-Nielsen said on Thursday.
Stolthaven broke ground on the first phase of its project on 9 June, the source said, adding that the facility was expected to be fully operational by the third quarter of 2011.

Total capacity of the terminal upon completion would be 354,000 cubic metres, the source said.
