Greenergy confirmed on Monday that it has commenced the supply of marine fuel at the Port of Tyne, in the north-east of England.

The latest development further expands Greenergy's service in the UK, which also supplies from Navigator Terminals Thames (south-east of England), Eastham (north-east of England), Grangemouth (Scotland), Cardiff (Wales) and Dublin and Foynes (Ireland).

Established in 1992, Greenergy is a leading distributor and marketer of transportation fuels in the UK, where it claims to be the largest road fuel supplier.

The company already has an extensive diesel supply infrastructure in the UK and has been gradually extending this network to include marine gas oil (MGO) in order to meet higher low-sulphur demand under the forthcoming IMO 2020 regulation changes.

According to Greenergy, the firm's new operation at Tyne is capable of performing deliveries via truck and ex-pipe, with a pumping rate of up to 250 cubic metres per hour.

Commenting on its bunker service, Varun Chhabria, Group Head of Marine Fuels at Greenergy, remarked: "We are applying the same approach to marine fuel as we do for our road fuel supply - to earn customer loyalty by supplying high quality fuel, safely and reliably.

"Our marine fuel sales are growing strongly and we expect to extend our supply footprint further in the coming months, making our marine fuel available to customers in new regions."
