says it has spent more than £250,000 (US$329,000) building a new fuel bunkering facility at Lowestoft, aimed at supplying the UK Southern North Sea (SNS) energy sector.
In early August the tanker Thun Grace brought in the first batch of fuel for supply from Lowestoft.
The bunkering service is being provided by a partnership Peterson UK and GEOS Group, which sources marine gas oil directly from UK refineries to various ports around the UK.
John Shade, Peterson UK’s Fuel Manager, said: “This new fuel bunkering facility provides operators from the oil and gas and offshore wind sectors with another reason to use Lowestoft as their port of choice, with capability and capacity now in place to service any vessel that comes into the port.”
Construction of the new facility, which included the raising of bund walls, began in November 2019 and was completed on schedule by the local contractor Brooks and Wood.
