Stanlow Terminals, based in Ellesmere Port in Cheshire, UK, has become the latest member of the UK Tank Storage Association (TSA).
TSA Executive Director Peter Davidson says: ‘We are delighted to be welcoming Stanlow Terminals to the TSA as a full member. Through our strong and diverse membership, we become a more powerful voice for the UK’s bulk liquid storage sector and associated logistics. Together, we look forward to continuing to champion the economic and strategic value of UK terminals.’
Stanlow Terminals has more than 200 tanks over two sites, Stanlow and Tranmere, ranging in size from 150 m3 to 100,000 m3, with a total capacity of 3 million m3. The company can store a range of products including crude oil, biofuel, LPG, petrochemicals, lubricants, jet fuel and bitumen.
The two sites have an upper tier COMAH licence and are linked by a pipeline. The Stanlow site has six jetties and access to the Manchester Ship Canal, while the Tranmere site has two further jetties. Tranmere can accommodate larger ships carrying up to 170,000 tonnes of crude oil with a draught of up to 14.3 m. There is also a road terminal with 17 self-loading gantries and multiple pipeline connections.
‘I am delighted that Stanlow Terminals has joined the TSA. The company was formed earlier this year and our tanks and related infrastructure in the North-West now contribute to the UK’s independent tank storage capacity. The TSA is an important organisation for companies engaged in the storage of bulk liquids and the provision of products and services to the sector. It provides an excellent platform to collaborate across the sector in the UK and abroad. The team at Stanlow Terminals looks forward to playing an active membership role,’ says Patrick Walters, Chief Executive Officer of Stanlow Terminals.
