Fuel supplier Greenergy offers low-cost, quality fuels and convenience retail solutions to the Canadian market. Its Thunder Bay operation traces its roots to the former CAN-OP fuel and terminal operations, which Greenergy acquired in 2017. Since that time, the company has continued to make significant investments in the terminal facilities to ensure a safe, efficient, and reliable supply of fuels for the entire region.
“We have an excellent fuel distribution facility in Thunder Bay, having made significant upgrades to enhance our offer and the driver experience,” says Mike Healey, Vice President Commercial and Business Development.
Greenergy’s Thunder Bay terminal is equipped with the latest blending technology, allowing the company to supply quality fuels for industrial use, for the transportation industry, and for aviation. This includes diesel, dyed diesel, Bio-blended diesel, Jet A-1, blended ethanol gasoline (E10), and TOP TIER™ detergent gasoline used in the automotive market.
To help customers cut their carbon emissions, the company also works to reduce particulates in all the fuels it supplies. “This is particularly important for our industrial customers in the region who are using our ultra-low sulphur diesel fuels with very high renewable (biodiesel) content in underground situations”, explains Healey. Greenergy is also supplying ethanol-blended gasoline (E10), well ahead of Provincial mandates for Northern Ontario.
To further support Thunder Bay customers, Greenergy offers competitively priced lubricants and diesel exhaust fluid, motor oils, hydraulic fluids and an assortment of other complementary products formulated to exceed industry standards and reduce downtime.
Greenergy also provides independent retailers with supply reliability and a choice of retail brands such as Inver and Breakaway. Adding to its corporately controlled portfolio, the company recently opened a new-to-industry Simply Gas forecourt and Waypoint Convenience location at 136 East Avenue.
“We’ve made a strong commitment to this community and to northwestern Ontario. It is our intention to be the first-choice supplier of reliable fuels for the region for many years”, highlights Healey.
Healey also explained that the company has agreements with a variety of Canadian, U.S., and even European suppliers, allowing it access to the most competitively priced product possible while maintaining an unmatched standard of reliability. This reduces the risk of supply disruption for its customers, which is key for both industrial and retail consumers.
“The infrastructure we have in place in Thunder Bay, combined with our assured supply, gives us the confidence to say we are best placed to provide the region with reliable fuel supply,” he adds.
Looking to the future, the company’s goal is to be ahead of the curve, investing in advanced fuels and expanding its supply footprint throughout Ontario with fuel terminals. As part of its growth plans, Greenergy is also looking for supply opportunities in other provinces. “Independent retailers are also key to our growth, and through our growing retail network that includes both convenience store and fuel brands we are bringing more choice and flexibility to the market,” he adds about the future of Greenergy.
