Mayfield bulk fuel storage facility expands to meet demand
The bulk fuel terminal located at Mayfield and owned by Stolthaven will more than double capacity if the company’s recent application for expansion is approved.
The $50 million bulk liquid storage facility is currently approved for a throughput of 400 million litres, an increase on the original approval of 300 million litres. Stolthaven have applied to the State Government to increase throughput to more than 1 billion litres of fuel per year.
This constitutes a major expansion to the Mayfield site located at the old BHP steelworks and involves fuels from bulk tankers being sent via a pipeline to above ground storage tanks. The reasons put forward for the expansion include meeting the demand in the mining and retail sectors.
