New fuel depot in Seychelles meets environmental best practice


Praslin, La Digue, and other nearby inhabited islands will benefit from shorter access to fuels and gas, now that a new depot was opened mid last week by President Michel.

The facility will store petrol, diesel, and LPG gas, and transportation of products from the new facility to consumers will cut down on transport time and cost, no longer having to go all the way to the main island of Mahe.

As the storage incorporates the latest technologies, environmental and health and safety issues have also now been comprehensively addressed, which will be good news for those promoting an intact environment as a key prerequisite for tourism and fishing, the two mainstream economic activities in the Seychelles.
