The Unimot Group imported diesel fuel from the United States to Poland, the company said. Eldia tanker with a capacity of 38 thousand tons tons shipped directly from the Garyville refinery in Louisiana.
“As we announced, we are intensively using our extensive commercial contacts, including the potential of our trading office in Geneva, to ensure diesel oil supplies to Poland after the introduction of sanctions on Russian petroleum products. The delivery from the United States was carried out without the need to use our transshipment terminal in Denmark, because the goods arrived directly to Poland by the largest tanker that can be handled by the port of Gdynia, i.e. a ship with a capacity of 38,000 m3. tone. The terminal in Denmark allows us to handle the largest tankers with a capacity of 100,000 m3. tons and we are in talks with contractors around the world regarding such deliveries,” said Robert Brzozowski, Vice-President for Commercial Affairs, quoted in the release.
The Unimot Group has been preparing to become independent from fuel supplies from Russia since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine. Therefore, at the beginning of April 2022, the company rented a terminal in Gulfhavn, Denmark, which enables the reloading of diesel oil from the largest tankers coming to Europe from directions other than Russia and further transport of fuel to Poland, and – if necessary – to all other ports in the Baltic Sea basin.
Unimot specializes in trading diesel oil, biofuels, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), natural gas (including LNG) and electricity. As a member of the international association Avia International, since 2017 he has been developing a network of petrol stations in Poland under the Avia brand. In 2020, the company entered the photovoltaics market with the Avia Solar brand. In March 2017, the company debuted on the main market of the Warsaw Stock Exchange after switching from NewConnect. The company had PLN 8.21 billion in consolidated revenue in 2021.
