The Geos Group recently said it conducted the first marine fuel delivery to a vessel in the newly opened South Harbour at the Port of Aberdeen.
“We delivered 1,200 cubic metres of fuel to offshore support vessel Southern Ocean, on behalf of GAC Bunker Services and Boskalis Subsea Services,” it said in a statement.
The firm said the Port of Aberdeen is nearly 900 years old, and the oldest business operating in the UK. The GBP 400 million (USD 503 million) expansion of the South Harbour got underway in 2017, and the first commercial vessel visited in July 2022. The project promises to create new opportunities in trade and the renewable energy sector (especially offshore wind power), and support the long-term decarbonisation goals of the oil and gas industry.
Aberdeen South Harbour is also preparing to welcome a steady flow of passenger cruise ships, which will open up opportunities in the global travel industry, attract thousands of visitors to Scotland and boost tourism across the whole of the northeast.
“To support this major infrastructure development project, the Geos Group stores fuel on the south side of the Port of Aberdeen. This enables us to offer a fast and flexible refuelling service to vessels visiting South Harbour, delivering by truck or by barge,” it said.
