Certas Energy has opened a new bunker refuelling site in Holyhead, North Wales.
The site is the only dedicated HGV-refuelling facility on the island of Anglesey and features a high-speed system which dispenses at a speed of up to 120 litres per minute. It allows up to four HGVs to refuel simultaneously.
The refuelling bunker is located alongside the existing Roadking truck stop, which opened in May 2015.
Andrew Goodwin, national bunker manager for Certas Energy, said: “The Holyhead site has been designed to meet the needs of the 400,000 lorries and trailers that pass through the port each year.
“The location of the refuelling bunker ensures that hauliers will no longer need to plan a detour to refuel before making their onward journeys.
“Holyhead is the second development in our continued partnership with Roadking; we anticipate the same level of success we enjoyed with our first collaboration, the Hollies Truckstop at Cannock.”
Nicholas Whatmore, director for Roadking, added: “We believe that this new site will provide a one-stop destination for the haulage community.
“A refuelling facility complements the existing services available at the existing truckstop.
“The Holyhead Port is the second-largest roll-on-roll-off (RORO) port in the UK so it’s vital that a nearby service station is able to provide top-quality facilities for drivers and hauliers.”
