For the next five years, GB Oils will be supplying the RNLI with both ultra low sulphur gas oil and marine gas oil to 61 of its sites, located across the UK.

As part of the contract, the company’s marine team will handle RNLI fuel enquiries, orders and deliveries, and will provide one central point of contact for the designated sites 24/7.

Andrew Woods, hovercraft operations manager at the RNLI, said: “The charity has an active fleet of 344 lifeboats that are used to provide 24 hour search and rescue services, so it’s really important that we have access to a reliable supply of fuel. Having experienced working with GB Oils previously, we were impressed with the company’s fast, efficient and dependable delivery service, and wide choice of quality marine fuels available.”

Gary Byres, national sales manager at GB Oils, said: “Over the years, we’ve built up a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the marine industry, to complement our large range of quality marine fuels and exceptional standards of customer service.

“We’re proud of the high quality services offered through our depots and no doubt this played a great part in us being awarded the national contract.”
