SHIPPING

With a view to keep supplying its plants in Volos and Porto Lagos, serving the elin island network of petrol stations in a problem-free way and remain active in the international trade by going beyond the requirements of modern shipping, the company has chartered 3 cutting-edge tanker ships, two of which, APILIOTIS and ZEFΥROS, have been awarded for their environmentally-friendly design.

More specifically, these two tanker ships feature double walls and a double bottom, state-of-the-art fuel level monitoring systems and closed loading of the tank trucks within the ship, thus excluding the possibility of any oil leaks in the event of an accident and ensuring the protection of the marine natural environment.

At the same time, the bottom loading technology of the dispensers and the vapor recovery systems these boast help them achieve zero fuel vapor emissions during loading, minimizing the environmental impact during the loading of their tank trucks.

LAND TRANSPORT

ELINOIL owns 24 more tank trucks that help it serve its clients' needs. These vehicles have a GPS system and level gauges which enable tracking of their courses and the delivered qualities.

It is particularly important to note that the tank truck drivers are selected using strict criteria and are properly trained by the company, so that clients can be served with safety and certainty.
