Located in the Port of Amsterdam, the world’s largest trading and blending hub for fuels, this new infrastructure is state-of-the-art and one of very few rail facilities that enable the movement of traditional fuels and bio products in the ARA-region. The new railway line and ethanol storage tanks connect to 20 Class 1 tanks in the port. This integrated biofuels facility provides an environmentally friendly logistics and product offering for customers

“A modern and flexible infrastructure is a key ingredient for the energy transition” said Dev Sanyal, CEO of Varo Energy Group. “We are delighted that through the strategic collaboration with our long-term partner GPS Group, we have re-purposed existing assets and built new infrastructure. Biofuels will continue to play an important role in the energy mix and as a pioneer in biofuels and as one of the largest providers of biofuels in the ARA-region, this new rail system and new capacity to store ethanol in the Port of Amsterdam are crucial to increase our capability to blend and deliver products safely across Europe.”

Eric Arnold, CEO of GPS Group, added that the completion of the new railway line and storage tanks marks another important milestone in the relationship between Varo and GPS.

The expansion of the existing infrastructure through GPS Group for Varo follows the commissioning of around 134,000 square metres of class 1 storage for Varo in December 2019. It also supports growing production needs to biofuels across geographies.
