VARO Energy to sell Hydrocarbon Hotel tank terminal to GPS Group
VARO Energy („VARO“), a leading downstream company in North West Europe, announced it has agreed to sell 100% of its shares in Hydrocarbon Hotel (“HCH”), a storage and hydrocarbon blending terminal located in the Port of Amsterdam. HCH will be acquired by Global Petro Storage (“GPS”) Group, an independent storage and logistics company backed by funds managed by Blue Water Energy (“BWE”) and White Deer Energy (“WDE”), which plans to develop the site further. VARO will continue to utilize the storage capacity of HCH to serve its customers.

HCH comprises 11 tanks with a total capacity of 148,500 m3 and three dedicated berths which are accessible to both sea- and inland-vessels. The terminal is primarily used for the import, export, storage and blending of gasoline, biofuels and gasoline components and has the potential for additional expansion.

Roger Brown, CEO of VARO, explained: “HCH provides VARO with the exclusive use of a modern and flexible storage facility in a strategically important location. This transaction enables us to continue to serve our customers from this first class asset, and we are excited by GPS’s plans for the further development of the site.”

Eric Arnold, CEO of GPS Group commented: “Global Petro Storage is pleased to have signed this transaction with VARO. This quality asset in the Port of Amsterdam gives GPS a firm footing in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (“ARA“) global hub. We are also delighted to have established a new long-term partnership with VARO which will help to facilitate our expansion in this area and also globally, as we further build out the GPS growth strategy.”

The transaction is expected to close at year-end.
