Greenergy’s Plymouth terminal shortlisted for safety award

Greenergy’s fuel storage terminal at Plymouth has been shortlisted for a prestigious global safety award by the Energy Institute (EI).
The EI awards recognise companies which have set new standards of excellence and innovation in their day to day operations. Greenergy’s shortlisting reflects the company’s ability to maintain and improve safety standards during an extensive regeneration programme.
Over the last five years Greenergy has undertaken major improvement work at its Plymouth terminal to bring it into line with the latest safety and environmental standards. 15 tanks have been restored or replaced, new truck loading facilities installed and there has been a complete overhaul of safety and maintenance procedures, making it one of the first terminals in the UK to adopt post Buncefield standards.
Earlier this year Greenergy’s Plymouth facility was also awarded its first Gold RoSPA award, following four consecutive Silver awards, in recognition of its outstanding health and safety management.
Nathan Leaver, Greenergy’s Plymouth terminal manager, said: “Being shortlisted for the Energy Institute safety award demonstrates the hard work and determination of the team in ensuring that the terminal is safe and efficient. It also shows us that our drive to innovate and instil new standards can be used as a benchmark throughout the industry.”
The winning entry will be announced on 13 November.
