Certas Energy, the UK’s leading fuel distributor, has underlined its commitment to improving fuel availability for Isle of Wight homes, farms and businesses by launching a new depot in East Cowes.
The opening of the depot was marked with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in August, which was attended by Certas Energy’s customers on the island.
Fast, reliable supply of Isle of Wight fuels
One of the key benefits is that it is a wet depot, meaning that fuel is housed on-site. With the majority of the island being off-grid, responsive, reliable fuel supply is critical to keep homes warm and businesses moving.
Thanks to the new site, on-island supply and Certas Energy’s five-strong tank fleet, customers can expect faster fuel delivery times of DERV, red diesel and kerosene than previously possible.
The depot, which employs seven members of staff, cements Certas Energy as the go-to fuel supplier for the Isle of Wight.
Fully committed to fuelling the Isle Of Wight
Boasting over 50 years of refuelling heritage, the company has had a presence on the island since 1969. First established under the Vectis Oils brand, it changed names a number of times, with Certas Energy taking over ten years ago.
Business Account Manager Vickie Hyde, whose father Peter Grannum set up Vectis Oils, said: “We are delighted with the new depot, and it represents an important investment in the community.
“People living on the Isle of Wight are like one big family and, having grown up on the island, there’s nothing better than knowing we’re supporting local businesses, farms and residents.
“It was very special to welcome the local business community to the depot for our launch event, we can’t wait to further build on our reputation as a trusted, local supplier and mainstay of the island community.”
