Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy Expands Contract with Peterson

Peterson Helifuel JetA1 tanks produced for this project. The large tanks in the back are for new fuel and the small ones in the front for the return of waste fuelPeterson Chemicals has secured a second logistics contract with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. The new contract for the Veja Mate windfarm in Germany, includes the supply of Jet A1 aviation fuel in offshore transport fuel tanks which is similar to the first contract awarded in August 2016. Siemens has also extended the original one year frame agreement for the Netherlands Gemini windfarm to three years.

The transport department based at Peterson’s supply base in Den Helder, will arrange for the tanks to be transported to the Siemens service base facility in Eemshaven. From here the tanks will then be shipped to both the new Veja Mate windfarm and the existing Gemini windfarm.   This new contract commenced 1 March 1 and will continue for three years for both Gemini and Veja Mate.

Rob van Duivenvoorde, Deputy Director of Peterson Chemicals says, “We are proud to have built an excellent working relationship with Siemens which is demonstrated by their decision, to not only extend the current one year contract to three years, but also to expand the scope of work to include the Veja Mate windfarm”.

In addition to the supply of aviation fuel, Peterson will provide and maintain six new aviation fuel tanks ready for transit with a capacity of 1,200l and 2,000l which are specially designed for the Veja Mate windfarm. Peterson will continue to cover the refilling of the tanks and follow all safety and environmental procedures to correctly handle the disposal of waste fuel.
