In a bid 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 the introduction of a new supply vessel.
WFS currently stores and supplies marine diesel and fuel oil from the Falmouth terminal, which forms the deepest harbour in Western Europe and provides an advantageous position at the start of the European ECA zone, offering ECA-compliant fuel to vessels entering or exiting Europe.
The investment includes an upgrade of the terminal facilities and an extension of exiting bunkering options with the introduction of Lizrix, a new 2200cbm capacity cargo vessel, which provides the ability of segregating up to five grades and has a pumping rate of 3-400 cbm/hr.
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.
