A new AUD$45 million (€28.9 million) liquid storage tank facility has been opened within the Port of Brisbane, Australia.
The facility can hold up to 20 million litres of petrol and 25 million litres of diesel.
Freedom Fuels will be using the tanks to distribute liquid fuels to their network of independent petrol stations, utilising the substantial underground piping network to pump fuel from GrainCorp’s berth to the storage tanks.
Don Taylor, GrainCorp chairman says: ‘Our facility provides a new and independent supply chain from refinery to the bowser and increases the utilisation of the Brisbane Port Zone.’
Construction started in 2014 and the facility has been completed ahead of schedule and on budget.
