Prax Group subsidiary Harvest Energy Marine has bought Total’s oil terminal in the Port of Zeebrugge in Belgium.
The terminal, which will be rebranded as Prax Terminals Belgium, has a capacity of 20,000 m3. Prax Group will use the facility to store marine bunker fuels and says that its location in the outer port means that it is ideally located to serve car carriers, cruise ships, container lines, RORO vessels and other companies throughout northwest Europe, with minimal turnaround time. Harvest Energy Marine will manage the bunkering and commercial operations at the terminal.
‘As we continue to serve customers from right across the northwest of the continent, it is imperative for us to maintain the strong brand reputation and high standards of safety, supply and service for which we are known. The acquisition of the terminal in Zeebrugge means that Harvest Energy Marine is readily able to adapt to the changes in the current bunkering market. We are in a great place to respond to the requirements of our customers, both new and existing, in order to continue to deliver innovative solutions to reduce refuelling times, whilst providing customers with their most important resource,’ says Geert Boden, general manager of Harvest Energy Marine.
