Extensive support facilities

To ensure the success of any large-scale operation, the right support is needed at every stage - from the ability to process products quickly and innovatively to adequate space for distribution vehicles that are always on the move.

Loading bay

Our 8 loading arms with advanced digital loading meters are capable of processing 180 m3 every hour, and feature grounding devices and earthing safety lockouts.

Every aspect of our loading bay is designed to prevent hold-ups and help trucks come and go effectively as well as efficiently.

To ensure that the loading bay remains operational, we also calibrate the loading arms quarterly and implement the proving of all meters.

Jetty

Our new jetty has a low tide of 7 meters and a high tide of 9 meter allowing vessel to berth from 5000 MT - 25,000 MT

Truck depot

Our depot can accommodate an impressive 250 trucks at any one time, in order to maintain a fast and consistent operational flow.

Power back-up 24/7

In the event of any failure, three generators provide a powerful back-up to ensure operations continue running smoothly until the mail power source is restored.


A safe environment for all

Safety comes first at Petrostar. Our depot has been designed to handle every emergency, for the protection of people, property and the environment.
