Greenergy opens new fuel distribution facility in Cardiff

31 January, 2012

Greenergy, the UK’s leading supplier of petrol and diesel, has today announced the start of petrol and diesel sales from its new tankage and distribution facilities in Cardiff. This follows completion of an 18-month project to refurbish an existing site and construct new tankage and rail facilities.

Greenergy's chief executive Andrew Owens said: “Our new facilities in Cardiff give us our own distribution facilities in South Wales for the first time, and the opportunity to increase sales in the region. Commercial sales from the terminal began in the first week of January and we have been phasing in additional customers over the past few weeks. We expect to reach full capacity during Q2 this calendar year.

“Completion of the terminal gives us control over stock availability and product quality in the Cardiff area, allowing us to achieve even higher levels of resilience for our customers. We are also increasing our own productivity by using rail to move fuel between Cardiff and our other UK terminals.”

Use of rail freight allows Greenergy to make smaller, but more frequent deliveries than would be economic by ship, allowing the company to operate in Cardiff with higher throughput and capacity utilisation than would otherwise be possible.

The Cardiff terminal was developed in a partnership between Greenergy and Inver Energy, an established tank storage operator. It follows investments by Greenergy in storage and distribution facilities at Teesside, Plymouth and Thames estuary.
