New HGV refuelling facility lined up for Holyhead Port

A 24-hour HGV refuelling facility is set to be built at Holyhead Port after Certas Energy revealed plans to develop a second facility with truck stop specialist RoadKing. Certas Energy has confirmed that a bunker facility will be created on the site, which is situated just off the A55 in North Wales at junction 2. The base is due to open later this year and the new facility will be situated on site at the existing RoadKing truck stop, which opened its doors in May 2015.

Up to four HGVs will be able to refuel at the same time. The site will also feature advanced data collection technology, fuel monitoring equipment and filtration systems. Andrew Goodwin, national bunker manager at Certas Energy, said: “Around 400,000 lorries and trailers pass through the busy Holyhead Port every year making it one of the busiest ports in the UK for Irish Sea freight, so this is a strategic investment for us that supports our ambition to establish a strong network of refuelling locations across the UK.”

The partnership between Certas Energy and RoadKing follows on from the success of a similar development in 2017.

Nicholas Whatmore, director for RoadKing, said: “Our collaboration with Certas Energy at our Cannock site has been a great success and we’re thrilled to now be extending that to Holyhead Port.”
