A new 24-hour self-service fuel pump and payment system has been installed at Hafan Pwllheli marina in North Wales. Berth holders and visitors to the Irish Sea facility can now serve themselves petrol and diesel when it suits them.

The payment system accepts any credit or debit card.

Wil Williams, Hafan Pwllheli Harbour Manager said: "Our new self-service fuel pumps are now successfully up and running after an initial trial period. After four weeks of operation, we can report the facility is proving very popular with berth holders and visitors alike. Everyone is enjoying the convenience of having fuel available 24/7.”

Under HMRC regulations, mariners must declare how much diesel they intend to use for propulsion as opposed to heating or electricity generation. Provided the fuel buyer is happy to accept the automatic onscreen 60:40 split option on the HTEC payment terminal, self-service diesel is available. If a different diesel fuel split is required, a member of the Hafan team is required to complete the sale during normal service hours.

Added Wil Williams: “Installing self-service fuel pumps is part of our ongoing commitment to improving the services on offer at Pwllheli. In recent weeks we have also completed dredging works in the main harbour channel and marina basin and improved WiFi coverage on the pontoons by installing additional booster aerials.”
