This is a terminal for storage and distribution of petrol products located in the Port of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The storage capacity is 220,000 m3, distributed in 13 tanks with a range of capacities of 7500 m3 to 30,000 m3.

The main activity of the terminal is bunkering, with it having a long, very deep jetty with 2 loading points to carry out offloading and loading operations with vessels and barges. It has 3 islets for the loading of tanker trucks, fully automated, for fuel oil and diesel fuel. On one of these it has a continuous fuel oil and diesel fuel mixing system to obtain IFO mixes.  The installations carried out are the following:


  • 20-kV reception and transformation centre and three 1000-kVA transformers
  • 1250-kVA diesel generator
  • General low-voltage distribution panel
  • Engine manoeuvring panel
  • High-efficiency speed shifters with low harmonic IGBT technology for 400-kW pumps
  • Laying of trays and power cables for ATEX zones
  • Exterior lighting, tanks and truck-loading and auxiliary zones
  • Supply and assembly of electrical tracing for interior fuel oil pipes
  • Stirring of fuel oil tanks and LCO by means of stirrers


  • Supply and assembly of Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) and distribution panel
  • Installation of the tank-level measuring system
  • Supply and installation of the truck-loading system, including product counters, earthing and overload detection. Assembly in an electrically and mechanically-built module, including loading arms
  • Installation of the auxiliary instrumentation of the terminal
  • Fuel oil tank-heating system with thermal oil
  • Laying of trays and power control cables for ATEX zones
  • Closed-circuit television and intercom and public address system


  • Supply and assembly of the control panel with PLC and communications system
  • Development of the control software of the terminal, including the tank-levelling system, loading and offloading of vessels, automatic truck-loading, product pumps, and entry and exit scales
  • Each islet has 2 bottom loading arms for fuel oil. One of these can perform continuous fuel oil and diesel fuel mixing to obtain IFO mixes.
  • Development of mix software for fuel oil and LCO/ diesel fuel in the tank by means of the transfer of products and stirring
  • Development of the SCADA supervision software of the terminal
  • Development of the management software of the terminal
  • Remote maintenance service for the control system
