UK-based Greenergy has expanded its supply of marine fuels to Tyne in northeast England on the back of its growing sales.
The latest operation to Tyne extends Greenergy’s marine fuel business from its existing supply locations in Navigator Thames, Eastham, Grangemouth, Cardiff, Dublin and Foynes.
Varun Chhabria, group head of marine fuels at Greenergy, said: “Our marine fuel sales are growing strongly and we expect to extend our supply footprint further in the coming months, making our marine fuel available to customers in new regions.”
Greenergy’s facilities at Tyne allow for supply both by road and pipeline directly to ships.
The latest venture to Tyne follows the company’s previous expansion of operation in March this year to Thurrock, covering the Thames and southeast England, and from Eastham covering the Mersey, the North West, North Wales and South Scotland, for the supply of marine gasoil.
Greenergy is gradually expanding its UK operations to include marine gasoil to meet increasing low sulphur fuel oil demand under the forthcoming IMO 2020 regulation changes.
Andrew Owens, chief executive of Greenergy, said earlier that the company intends to build on its existing distillate supply chains to blend, store and supply marine fuels, both in the UK and further afield.
