WFS invests in upgrade and supply in Falmouth
In a bid to meet customer needs beyond 2020 World Fuel Services (WFS) is investing at its current supply location in Falmouth, UK, to upgrade facilities and introduce 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 its ongoing commitment to customers with regards quality of service. 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.
Headquartered in Miami, Florida, WFS is a global fuel logistics, transaction management and payment processing company, principally engaged in the distribution of fuel and related products and services in the aviation, marine and land commercial, industrial and transportation industries.
