Gunvor divests stake in Rotterdam Terminal to GES under long-term energy transition partnership
   - GES is acquiring part of the assets of Stargate Terminal from Gunvor Group and will develop over 20 hectares of vacant land.
   - GES has ambitious plans to develop a large industrial site at Rotterdam for storage solutions for low carbon products to facilitate the energy transition.
   - This is the first deal announced by the newly formed GES, a company with a focus on energy transition fuels and related services.

Global Energy Storage (GES) announces today its first major investment at Europoort in the Port of Rotterdam. It is buying an interest in part of the assets of the Stargate Terminal from Gunvor Group and will develop more than 20 hectares at the heart of the port. The deal has been formally approved by the Port of Rotterdam Authority.

The site includes a significant waterfront with deep water access, brownfield development opportunities and potential greenfield development sites. Gunvor will be a long-term partner of GES at the Port of Rotterdam.

“We’re pleased to be partnering with GES to further support the development of environmentally responsible projects in the port of Rotterdam,” said Richyal, Global Head of Portfolio at Gunvor Group. “This deal is in line with Gunvor’s strategy to support the advancement of Energy Transition initiatives at our key asset locations.”

Gunvor also recently announced that its Rotterdam facility will supply to material science company Dow cracker-ready feedstock, which will be used to produce circular plastics.

GES’ ambitious plans include the development of a new multi-purpose seagoing jetty, as well as developing infrastructure for:

   - Consolidation of biofuel storage
   - Storage for renewable fuels
   - Gas storage
   - Gas to chemicals production
   - Green and blue hydrogen
   - Hydrogen carriers such as ammonia

Peter Vucins said, “This project aims to become one of the largest low-carbon developments at a world-class industrial hub, with the potential to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of future business in the Port of Rotterdam. Alongside a new jetty that we aim to develop and low-carbon commodity infrastructure, we are also looking to become part of the logistics chain needed to import blue and green hydrogen. I hope this gives a glimpse of the size of our ambitions.”

The Port of Rotterdam is Europe’s largest port, with deep-water access and world-class connectivity to inland waterways and pipeline infrastructure.

Peter Vucins said, “The port is ideally placed for this development, which will bring low-carbon technology to one of the world’s great trading hubs that has taken a leading position in the energy transition with very significant and ambitious developments of its own.”

GES has a focus on energy transition fuels and fuels-of-the-future. Its strategy is to concentrate on key global hubs, international cross-linked business, and long-term relationships with top-tier energy suppliers.

Eric Arnold, Executive Chairman of GES, added, “This is the first of what we hope will be many deals. We are looking to develop an international network of storage and logistics infrastructure for low-carbon commodities. You can expect to see a rapid expansion across 2021-22.”

GES was set up by the management team from Global Petro Storage (GPS), the leading operator and developer of energy and chemical assets. GES has a unique proposition:

   - A proven management team with experience that is second-to-none
   - Private Equity backing, meaning swift decisions and a longer-term view
   - Exclusive focus on energy transition fuels

GES, which launched in May 2021, is backed by Bluewater, the specialist international private equity firm focused on the middle-market energy sector.
