With limited infrastructure development within the harbour over recent years, recreational boat owners have been limited to using old and in many instances sub standard fuelling facilities. This is about to change with Thursday's opening of White Bay 6 by Baileys Marine.
Featuring a total of 440,000 litres of capacity, delivered through high flow fuel lines, the $7 million facility will ensure consistent supply for any and all types of vessels. Recreational boat owners have been catered for with deep water access to three high flow fuel pumps at the eastern end of the facility, also offering sullage and oily water disposal services.
'When we were first presented with the opportunity to be involved at White Bay 6 we undertook extensive local consultation to understand the challenges facing local recreational and commercial boat owners, so that our facility would deliver to their needs,' said Guy Bailey, White Bay 6 Managing Director.
'It became very clear that the harbour needed a facility that could offer consistent fuel supply, at competitive prices, and always with the preservation of the harbour as the priority. I'm delighted to say that White Bay 6 delivers that, and in future will become a central marine fuel and service location.'
Baileys Marine have developed a reputation for investing in and building state of the art marine fuel service facilities around the country, to cater to the needs of commercial and recreational boat operators. It is with this experience that they embarked on the White Bay 6 project working in conjunction with the BIA, Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and local residents to ensure the highest ecological standards were adhered to.
Baileys Marine went one step further and have actually designed and operate the facility under international standard ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System) to ensure the protection of the harbour and surrounds.
Baileys Marine, due to their national buying power, has a reputation for offering the highest quality fuel at very competitive prices – another reason for the boat owners of Sydney Harbour to visit the new facility.
White Bay 6 officially opens Thursday 7 April and will provide 24/7 commercial refuelling, and recreational fuel services from 5am-10pm (manned 7am-6pm), 7 days a week. Fuel can be purchased using credit card or Baileys Marine fuel cards at the bowsers.
