Local Oil Terminal
- In 2000, Galana acquired the main oil import terminal with 45 hectares of land and storage capacity of 250,000m3.
- From 2000 to date, Galana Raffinerie et Terminal (GRT) has expanded and modernised the local import Terminal facilities, with 22 storage tanks of 110,000m3 capacity, a sludge treatment plant, as well as trucks and rail wagons loading bays.
- GRT receives, stores, maintains, and delivers imported petroleum products for the 4 local petroleum distributors. The Terminal receives tankers at the Jetty and transports products via pipelines to the storage tanks. Product is then delivered through trucks, rail wagons and coastal tankers.
- GRT owns and operates a state-of-the-art Laboratory that provides product quality assurance for the local distributors.
- GRT is proud to have been recommended by SGS for the following triple-certification: ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001.
Regional Free-Zone Storage Hub
As of 2000, GRT developed a Free-Zone Hub consisting of 100,000m3 storage tanks, which is distinct and separate from the Import Terminal. Galana has enough land to construct more storage tanks to reach a total capacity of 500,000m3 with minimum construction costs.
Opportunities to leverage the Hub’s capabilities and unique geographic position include:
- Breaking of bulk and re-supply of the various regional countries in the Indian Ocean and East and Southern Africa
- Strategic oil storage reserve for African country and Indian Ocean Islands in the vicinity
- Installation of facilities to develop the bunkering business
Mozambique Terminals & Storage
We are pleased to announce the construction of oil storage terminals in Beira and Matola.
The Beira Terminal – based in the Port of Beira – and the Matola Terminal – based in the Port of Matola – will each have a capacity of approximately 50,000 m3. The terminals will be able to store refined oil products, including Gasoil (Diesel), Mogas (Gasoline), and Jet A-1.
The Terminals will be used to store and channel Galana’s oil products for both the local market and for re-export to the neighboring hinterland countries.
Phase 1 of the projects is expected to be completed in Q-3 2014.
