Alex Cunningham, Member of Parliament for Stockton North, today welcomed the news that Greenergy – the UK’s leading supplier of petrol and diesel – has commenced diesel, gasoil and kerosene supply from its Teesside terminal, known as Greenergy North Tees.
The North Tees facility closed having ceased commercial operation earlier in the year following the administration of Petroplus Refining Teesside Ltd and was acquired by Greenergy in July 2012,.
Since taking over at the terminal, Greenergy has undertaken a condition survey and made certain improvements prior to commencing supply. Further significant investments at the site are now planned in order to create an integrated supply system for petrol and diesel in the North East and a new hub for Greenergy’s rail distribution network.
The various improvements planned during the coming 18 months include jetty modifications and refurbishments to tankage and road loading facilities, as well as a new pipeline to link Greenergy North Tees to other terminals in the Teesside area and various enhancements to IT infrastructure.
“I was delighted to hear that the supply of diesel, gasoil and kerosene from Greenergy North Tees is now underway. I welcome the investment made by Greenergy that will bring further jobs to the area, and appreciate the faith that is being demonstrated in the skills of my Stockton North constituents. I look forward to seeing operations on Teesside expand, and hope to continue working closely with Greenergy moving into the future.”
