After six years working together, Rubis Terminal and ERIKS clearly support each other in these common goals. This added value motivated Rubis for add an additional focus: standardization.

Standardization

Prior to the intial shipment of valves, Rubis Terminal and ERIKS discussed the possibility to standardize the valves used throughout the terminal.

Van Roosendaal (Rubis): "We don’t have our own Technical Service or warehouse and we therefore rely on external parties for maintenance. ERIKS is the first supplier with whom we have concluded a long-term agreement, but more will follow."

 

"Standardization offers guaranteed quality and guaranteed pricing", Van Roosendaal continues.

 








 

"This makes maintenance and expansion projects easier to manage. And with a contract you also know what you can expect from each other and we are assured of a loyal supplier."

In the five-year contract between Rubis Terminal and ERIKS, agreements were made about stock positions, delivery times and prices. Of course, Rubis Terminal did not sign the agreement without a reasonable period of consideration. "ERIKS has been our main valves and fittings supplier since the development of this terminal started," explains van Roosendaal. "When developing and constructing phases 1 to 5, they proved themselves to be more than adequate. When you review these phases and the products supplied by ERIKS, you can already see a high level of standardization in the Rubis Terminal. Quality proves itself by requiring a very low MRO requirement."

"Especially when looking at the future, lot's of things are going to happen at the Rubis Terminal. ERIKS will again be offered a chance to fulfill the role of a full service partner who co-develops with a focus on obtaining our common goals", Van Roosendaal ends.
