Large vessels are bunkered by road tankers at No.3 Pier, No.2 Pier and Esplanade Quay. There is a fuelling facility at the northend of Esplanade Quay, operated by Stornoway Port Authority on behalf of the local authority, for fuelling fishing vessels and leisure craft. As Stornoway is located outside the Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA), plans are currently underway to establish a bunkering facility for larger vessels transiting into and out of the SECA.
The main marine fuel distributors in Stornoway are: Scottish Fuels and Highland Fuels Ltd.
Comhairle nan Eilean Siar has established a marine fuelling facility at Esplanade Quay. The system is ‘self-service’ and requires all users to have pre-arranged key holder accounts with Comhairle nan Eilean Siar.
Visitors not registered with Comhairle nan Eilean Siar may be able to obtain fuel on completion of the Stornoway Port Authority registration form. Please contact Stornoway Port Authority Office for assistance.
