Today, Vopak and its partner Global Ports Investments PLC, announce that they have divested their 100% effective share ownership in the 50/50 joint venture Vopak E.O.S. to Liwathon. Vopak E.O.S. operates a total storage capacity of 1,026,000 cbm in the Port of Tallinn and includes the railway company E.R.S. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Vopak E.O.S.
