April 11, 2023 [Tank Storage Mag] – Impala Terminals has officially opened its first Australian energy import, storage and distribution terminal, Kwinana Bay, Western Australia.
Strategically located next to the Kwinana Bulk Jetty (KBJ), Impala Terminals Kwinana will bring fuel distributors alternatives to serve Perth and the surrounding region, creating a more resilient energy market and greater supply security to the people of Western Australia.
The new terminal, which has been in operation since last October, has a storage capacity of 225 million litres/1.4 million barrels, with 11 bulk tanks, four day tanks and a butane tank. The facility includes a diesel express lane which significantly reduces loading time for delivery vehicles, and is equipped with the latest equipment and automation systems. The terminal is currently handling diesel and gasoline, as well as butane for blending, and is supported by a strategic anchor customer.
Sjoerd Bazen, CEO of Impala Terminals energy infrastructure: ‘We are very excited to be here, not only as an asset owner and operator, but also as a company committed to further investing into Western Australia infrastructure. We have been impressed by the support and collaboration with the local government, the Fremantle Port Authority and other key stakeholders and look forward to building on these relationships.
The terminal offers the latest infrastructure and technology and will help our customers better serve their customers by optimising their operations. Safety is our top priority, and we want to make sure that all of our employees, contractors and partners go home safe each day.’
