Leading energy company Chevron New Zealand has proudly reopened the Timaru Terminal today.

To help commemorate the reopening, Chevron has made a significant donation of books to local campaigner Hayden Vaughan, who aims to reduce youth depression in many ways, not the least of which is by making available ‘All Blacks Don’t Cry’, by former All Black, Sir John Kirwan.

In total $4,000,000 worth of upgrades and refurbishments will be invested into the site. As part of this investment the terminal has received upgraded fire protection systems, new software to ensure the terminal can provide the best service and an additional 20 million litres of fuel storage to reduce uncertainty of fuel supply to the lower South Island. The Terminal stores regular petrol, premium petrol and diesel products.

“Chevron is committed to supporting all New Zealanders,” says Pete Morris, General Manager of Chevron New Zealand. “In reopening the Timaru Terminal we are able to help South Canterbury businesses, while on a community level we have been able to donate 250 books to the local high schools in support of Hayden Vaughan’s mission to reduce youth depression.”

Timaru’s future as a thriving New Zealand town is more secure with investments of the size of the Chevron Terminal refurbishment and important community works.
