Certas Energy, working in partnership with RoadKing, hosted the grand opening of the new state-of-the-art HGV refuelling site at The Hollies Truckstop, Cannock.
Accompanied by truckstop users, the launch celebrated the significant investment in the site and the recognition of the Certas Energy and RoadKing partnership to complete the project.
The site, located on the A5 Watling Street, 1mile from M6 junction 12, will provide diesel, gas oil and AdBlue® for truckstop users and accepts a variety of fuel cards including Key Fuels and UK Fuels. High speed pumps that pump 120 litres of fuel per minute will allow four vehicles to fill up at the same time.
To mark the grand opening, members of Certas Energy and RoadKing were joined by truckstop users for a ribbon cutting event at the refuelling site. Attendees were then invited to stay to indulge in the refreshments provided whilst speaking to members of the team to find out more about the products and services available including signing up for a Certas Energy fuel card.
Andrew Goodwin, National Bunker Manager for Certas Energy, said “We’re delighted that the project has gone to plan and the refuelling site is now open. This is another major milestone in our strategy to develop a national network of refuelling sites. For Certas Energy, this development is designed to meet the needs of hauliers travelling on the M6/A5; making it extremely convenient to refuel without having to detour too far off route. We are pleased with the partnership that we have built to date with RoadKing and look forward to this continuing in the future”.
Nicholas Whatmore, Director, RoadKing, commented “It’s great that the new refuelling site is now open. Following the recent £1.5million investment at the truckstop, the refuelling site provides hauliers with a convenient and efficient way to refuel before making their onward journey. The Certas Energy team have been professional to deal with and we look forward to building upon that partnership in future.
