Exol Lubricants has successfully facilitated an exercise simulating the response to a hydrocarbon spill incident at its bulk blending site in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. Held on 21 September, the Oil Spill Incident Management Exercise was set in real time at Stevenson Wharf, Rotherham, and was designed to exercise the emergency response procedures and contingency plans in place for Canal and River Trust (CRT) North East.
Exol Lubricants has won the award of excellence from the Commercial Boat Operators Association (CBOA) for its economic commitment to the waterways. The award was presented to Exol sales director and IAAF CV Committee chairman Steve Dunn at the FTA Multimodal awards, held at the Vox, Resorts World, in front of more than 600 guests.
Exol Lubricants has recently added a new barge, “Exol Pride,” to the North East Waterways, which will transport raw materials from Hull to its bulk blending plant in Rotherham. Exol has been a long term user of the waterways, leading the oil and lubricants market by using an environmentally friendly option while transporting large loads. The company has been commended for its reduction in carbon footprint and has even featured in ITV’s Barging about Britain, hosted by John Sergeant.
