Greenergy Acquires Amsterdam Biodiesel Manufacturing Facility

Oiltanking has reached an agreement with Greenergy, a UK supplier of transportation fuels, to purchase an idle biodiesel manufacturing facility located at Oiltanking’s site in Amsterdam. The acquisition of a third biodiesel plant will allow Greenergy to meet growing demand for waste-based biofuel in the UK and Europe.

The Amsterdam biodiesel manufacturing facility was built in 2010 to process vegetable oils but was never commissioned. Greenergy plans to carry out works over the next year to convert the facility to process waste oils rather than vegetable oils and then to add further production capacity. Under a long-term agreement, Oiltanking will provide Greenergy with storage facilities for raw materials and finished biodiesel, as well as a range of support services. 

Jan Willem van Velzen, Managing Director from Oiltanking Amsterdam B.V. says: “Oiltanking has successfully found an experienced new owner for the biodiesel facility. Oiltanking will also be investing into its own infrastructure in order to accommodate Greenergy’s logistical needs. As Greenergy's logistical partner we are proud to become an integral part of this green sustainable supply chain.”

Oiltanking GmbH is a subsidiary of Marquard & Bahls, a Hamburg-based company that operates in the fields of energy supply, trading and logistics. Oiltanking is one of the largest independent tank storage providers for petroleum products, chemicals and gases worldwide. The company owns and operates 76 terminals in 25 countries within Europe, North and South America, Middle East, Africa, India as well as in Asia. Oiltanking has an overall storage capacity of more than 20 million cbm. 

Greenergy is an established supplier and distributor of transportation fuels with a proven track record as the low-cost supplier delivering highly reliable customer service. Greenergy markets in the UK, Ireland, Canada and Brazil as well as through a joint venture in Bahrain. 

In order to import and distribute its own blended fuel products, the company has made extensive investments in marine and rail-fed storage terminals and in road haulage capability. Greenergy is also the world’s largest manufacturer of biodiesel from waste and has made a number of upstream waste collection investments in order to access growing volumes of raw materials from around the world.

By investing across the fuel supply chain, the company is able to keep custody and quality-control of the fuel supply chain from refinery gates anywhere in the world to its customers’ sites in the countries where it markets.
