Marine gas oil storage is now on offer at Inter Terminals’ Tyne Terminal in Tyne and Wear, England.
Certas Energy, one of the largest distributors of fuels and lubricants in Britain, is now storing marine fuel with the bulk liquid storage company under an extended contract.
The facility benefits from its strategic location on the estuary of the River Tyne. The facility provides specialist storage for marine fuel – DMA grade MGO with less than 0.1% Sulphur – together with dedicated road loading and pipeline transfer systems for redelivery of product by road and sea.
Terminal operators have since had their skill set extended to marine bunkering capability and experience.
The unmarked MGO is being stored in six tanks with a combined capacity of 5,000 m3.
Gary Byers, head of marine at Certas Energy, says: ‘This development is in line with our growth plans in the marine sector.’
