First biodiesel facility opens in the North Island

Wednesday, 29 July, marked the opening of the new truckstop facility at the Fulton Hogan Reliable Way office. The truckstop development forms part of our bulk fuel facility roll out, led by corporate procurement focusing on the environmental and operational benefits to the business.

With the Fulton Hogan Board present, Chairman, Dean Hamilton, had the pleasure of cutting the ribbon on the new fuel facility comprising of two, 30,000 litre tanks holding B100 from Greenfuels and mineral diesel supplied by our bulk fuel preferred supplier Allied Petroleum.

The facility offers refuelling from both sides, with three fuel pumps that can deliver the biodiesel blend.

This marks a significant milestone for Fulton Hogan and Greenfuels™, as this is the first biodiesel facility in the North Island. It enables the Auckland regional business, to further reduce its carbon emission focusing on the 2025 goal of reducing carbon emissions by 25%.

GreenFuels™ specialises in providing New Zealand with biodiesel, a less-hazardous, environmentally friendly fuel that can directly replace conventional petroleum diesel needs. It’s made right here in New Zealand, offering a fuel alternative that can really make a difference. The biodiesel is made from 100% recycled vegetable oil, refined it in our Christchurch factory and then bulk shipped to Auckland in partnership with Allied Pretroleum.

Representatives from Watercare Services Limited Enterprise Model were also present. Pictured with Dean Hamilton is Anna Mogridge, Agile Lead for Watercare Enterprise Model P1st Team. The Enterprise Model has a bold carbon reduction target of 40% relating to construction carbon across the $2.4BN programme over the next ten years with biodiesel playing a significant part in realising this target.
