November 2012 – Inver Energy has taken delivery of its first marine gas oil import to the Cardiff terminal.

Cardiff terminal

 

The LS Evanne delivered over 6000 tonnes of the new product, after the tank farms and loading racks underwent substantial re-engineering to facilitate the order. The marine market within south Wales and south west England has not had access to marine gas oil since 2011 following EU wide changes in gas oil specifications, which caused a significant competitive disadvantage within the market. Inver has a long history of fuel supply to vessels of all sizes in the UK and Ireland, and this new product broadens the fuel offering to customers. The fuel has the added advantage of meeting the approved specification (BS2869), and can be used in boiler and furnace systems to provide a more economical solution for heating.
