The Port of Cardiff has celebrated the start of a new contract with Valero, a global refiner specialising in the manufacture of transportation fuels and petrochemical products, which will help power the economy of Wales’ Capital city and the wider region. The new long-term agreement includes occupation of a 12-acre storage and distribution terminal adjacent to ABP’s Roath Dock in Cardiff which will be fed by coastal tankers utilising Cardiff’s multimodal and deep-sea connectivity. As part of the agreement, Valero will be importing predominantly road fuels, including petrol, ultra low sulphur and biofuels, as well as heating fuels, into Cardiff for distribution to the regional market in South Wales.

Valero utilises a coastal shipping service linking its West Wales refinery in Pembroke to its network of storage and distribution terminals around the UK and Ireland, with expectations to handle considerable liquid bulk tonnage through Cardiff every year.

In preparation for the new contract, ABP has made significant investments in enhancing port infrastructure, including investing more than GBP 400,000 in jetty infrastructure upgrades and recently completion of a five year programme to replace both the inner and outer lock gates, representing a GBP 5 million investment to secure marine access for the next 50 years.
