In a move designed to meet customer needs beyond 2020, World Fuel Services (WFS) has announced a recent investment at its current supply location in Falmouth, UK, to upgrade facilities and introduce a new supply vessel.

WFS currently stores and supplies marine diesel and fuel oil at the Falmouth terminal, which forms the deepest harbour in Western Europe and offers ECA-compliant fuel to vessels entering or exiting Europe from a location that is virtually at the entrance of the region's Emission Control Area (ECA).

The latest investment comprises an upgrade of the terminal facilities and an extension of bunkering options with the introduction of the Lizrix - a new 2,200-cubic-metre-capacity (cbm) cargo vessel that is able to segregate up to five grades and has a pumping rate of between 300 and 400 cbm per hour.

"The terminal upgrade enhances on WFS' portfolio of physical supply locations and their ongoing commitment to customers with regard to the service, integrity and quality.

"The investment at Falmouth allows WFS to enhance its customer provision and experience at this key location for Europe, leading up to 2020, and beyond," WFS said.
