Dachser has opened a dangerous goods warehouse at Ploiesti near Bucharest. The 6,500 sq m, 11,500 pallet spaces facility is currently the only one of its kind in Romania, says the freight and logistics company. Dachser Romania has constructed the warehouse with the support of Liegl & Dachser. The Hungarian joint venture has operated a dangerous goods warehouse in compliance with the strict Seveso II Directive in Pilisvörösvár near Budapest since 2006. Dangerous goods in the VCI dangerous goods classes 2, 3, 4.1, 6.1, 8, 10–13 can be stored safely in the facility, which is divided into six fire protection zones separated by fire protection walls and doors. Sprinklers with foam mixing system are installed at each storage level. The dangerous goods warehouse is also equipped with fire alarm systems and sensors for combustible and toxic volatile substances. The warehouse floor is waterproof and repels oil and chemicals.
