This Port of Blyth site will soon have three new marine fuel storage tanks
Having constructed concrete bases for three new marine fuel storage tanks at the Bates Terminal at the Port of Blyth, infrastructure work including bund walls and access roads, is now underway.
“The Port of Blyth is a growing offshore energy hub with excellent deep water facilities in a strategically well-positioned location,” said managing director, Barry Newton. “We’re delighted that the construction of the fuel tanks themselves is now underway.”
Marine fuel supplier The Geos Group is developing the new fuel storage facility where each tank will have a capacity of 5 million litres. A specialist supplier of marine gas oil providing storage, supply, trading and logistics, Geos has terminals at Lerwick, Aberdeen, Peterhead, Heysham and the Thames. Bunkering teams in these locations operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Fuel is sourced ex-refinery and transported to terminals using the company’s dedicated tanker. With dedicated transport and storage on the Thames, the company offers supply to ports all around the south and southeast of England. Physical stock is also available for customers to collect ex-rack, using their own vehicles.
