Certas Energy is to develop a new HGV refuelling bunker facility at The ‘fechan Truckstop (Eardley International) in Scotland.
The site is located at Junction 19 of the M74 in Ecclefechan, Lockerbie, which has recently been expanded to provide more overnight parking options for customers.
Certas Energy hopes to open the site in the next few months and the plans follow an announcement last month that a 24-hour HGV refuelling facility will also be built at Holyhead Port in North Wales.
The ‘fechan Truckstop is also part of the SNAP payment network, which Certas Energy recently acquired.
SNAP Account enables HGV operators, managers and drivers to use cashless transactions.
Andrew Goodwin, national bunker manager at Certas Energy, said: “We’re continuing to expand our bunker network quickly to better service the UK HGV and large vehicle market.
"Our new refuelling site at The ‘fechan Truckstop is another key element of our growth strategy as we’ll be ideally placed to service a large portion of Scotland’s driver network.
Fuel cards from Certas Energy, UK Fuels and Key Fuels will all be accepted at the site, with Certas Energy card users receiving a 1ppl discount on all diesel purchases.
