Energy logistics provider Peterson has secured a logistics contract with original equipment manufacturer Siemens. The scope of works includes the supply of Jet A1 aviation fuel in offshore transport fuel tanks.
Peterson’s supply base in Den Helder, the Netherlands will transport the tanks to the Siemens service base facility in Eemshaven where the tanks will then be shipped to the Gemini wind farm. The contract commenced August 1st 2016 and will continue for 1 year with a possibility to extend for 3 more years.
Rob van Duivenvoorde, Deputy Director of Peterson Chemicals says, “We are delighted to be part of this project and look forward to working closely with Siemens. The Peterson Chemicals team has more than 25 years of experience when it comes to a safe and efficient supply of aviation fuel, but also chemicals such as methanol and glycol.”
Additional to the supply of aviation fuel, Peterson will provide and maintain a sufficient number of aviation fuel tanks ready for transit with a capacity of 2,900 litres. Peterson will cover the refilling of the tanks and follow procedures to correctly handle the disposal of waste fuel.
David Molenaar, director of Siemens Wind Power in the Netherlands comments, “The Gemini wind farm is facilitated with a refuelling system for helicopters. This enables us to plan our helicopters in a safe and efficient manner. The mix of services provided by Peterson Chemicals for aviation fuel, portable offshore transport tanks, land, sea and air transport, dangerous goods procedures, and customs documentation is an excellent fit to our needs.”
