GB Oils Rules The Waves!
5th October 2012
GB Oils - better known as the UK's leading fuel distributor - is also a significant supplier of quality marine fuels, lubricants and lubrication services. The company has recently extended its customer base, in corporation with Scandinavian Bunkering AS, who has a bunkering contract for Military of Defence (MoD) vessels.
The company is working together with Scandinavian Bunkering AS, an approved NATO supplier, to provide the best possible service to the MoD vessels, which demand a high level of discretion as well as a fast, efficient and dependable bunkering service.
As part of the service, the GB Oils' marine team has been supplying gas oil (A2) to the MoD Police Launches Excalibur and the Endeavour, which acted as patrol and support vessels for amphibious assault carrier HMS Ocean - the Royal Navy's largest ship - during the Olympic and Para-Olympic Games.
In addition, the two vessels were supplied with oil during the Queen's Jubilee, demonstrating GB Oils' ability to meet demand during a very busy time period, when many vessels were requiring oil.
Gary Byers, National Sales Manager at GB Oils, said, "We are proud to be able to bunker the Military of Defence vessels with a reliable supply of fuel when they need it. Over the years, we've built up a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the marine industry, which means we can offer a large range of quality marine fuels and exceptional standards of customer service to meet very specific needs. By collaborating with Scandinavian Bunkering, we have created a strong team and we look forward to building a strong future together."
