English Español UK: Certas Energy breaks ground on new HGV refuelling bunker

The refuelling bunker site at the Port of Southampton will also offer Shell GLT Fuel.



Last update:

Certas Energy, the UK’s largest independent distributor of fuels and lubricants, hosted a ground-breaking ceremony as work commences on the construction of a new HGV refuelling bunker site at the Port of Southampton. Working in partnership with leading port operator Associated British Ports (ABP), the HGV refuelling facility is the first of its kind to be opened inside the port.

Featuring an offset tank layout with a combined capacity of 250,000 litres and eight high-speed refuelling pumps, the facility will dispense fuel at speeds of up to 120 litres per minute.

The new refuelling facility will dispense DERV, red diesel, AdBlue and cleaner-burning diesel alternative, Shell GTL Fuel.

Customers will also be able to purchase Shell GTL Fuel with Carbon Offsets from the bunker site at the Port of Southampton. Shell GTL Fuel with Carbon Offsets from Certas Energy removes CO₂ from the atmosphere equivalent to those created by the production, delivery and use of Shell GTL Fuel.

“We are pleased to be able to offer Shell GTL Fuel at the port for site users for the first time. This significant move supports our commitment to further improve local air quality and facilitates smoother operations for visiting HGVs,” said Clive Thomas, ABP Port of Southampton Head of Commercial and Property.

The new refuelling facility located at the heart of the Port of Southampton will join Certas Energy’s network of 21 bunker sites across the UK.
