RC2 C.V. is a 50/50 joint venture company of ARG mbH & Co. KG and Havenbedrijf Rotterdam N.V. (HbR). HbR is the operator and the development company of the Port of Rotterdam and the industrial sector in the Rotterdam area.
HbR is a 100% subsidiary of the Municipality of Rotterdam.
RC2 operates a pipeline system for transporting ethylene between Antwerp and Rotterdam, the two largest port and industrial complexes in Europe, on a so-called common carrier basis. “Common carrier” means that, depending on available pipeline capacity, any potential ethylene consumer, producer or third party can contract ethylene transport subject to a standard product specification, General Carrying Conditions and a public tariff system.
The total distance of the RC2 common carrier is 117 km between Rotterdam and Antwerp. The pipeline is partly owned, partly leased by RC2. RC2 owns a 10-inch pipeline, built in 2003, between Maasvlakte, Europoort and Botlek in the port and industrial area of Rotterdam. In the Botlek area, this pipeline is connected to a pipeline of Shell. RC2 leases transport capacity in this pipeline, which runs from Botlek via Pernis and Moerdijk to Antwerp. The owned and leased transport capacities are commercially operated by RC2.
