Certas Energy has announced plans to develop an HGV refuelling bunker facility at the ’fechan Truckstop (Eardley International) in Scotland. The site is located at Junction 19 of the M74 in Ecclefechan, Lockerbie, and will provide room for up to three HGVs to refuel simultaneously.

Certas Energy hopes to open the site in the next few months and the plans follow a similar announcement last month that a new 24-hour HGV refuelling facility will also be built at Holyhead Port in North Wales.

The ’fechan Truckstop is part of the SNAP payment network, which Certas Energy recently acquired. SNAP enables HGV operators, managers and drivers to benefit from cashless transactions while on the road, using an end-to-end processing and payment system.

The new site will enable drivers to refuel through multi-product dispensers including road diesel, gas oil and AdBlue and will feature advanced data collection technology, fuel monitoring equipment and filtration systems.

Andrew Goodwin, national bunker manager at Certas Energy, said: "Our new refuelling site at the ’fechan Truckstop is another key element of our growth strategy as we’ll be ideally placed to service a large portion of Scotland’s driver network."
