NORTHERN Australian shipping company Sea Swift has renewed a long-term contract with Puma Energy to deliver bulk diesel across the Northern Territory.

Sea Swift general manager Scott Ezzy said the contract would provide the continuation of sustainable services by barge to remote NT coastal communities and islands, powering businesses, schools, health centres and homes.

“We are also able to deliver more fuel and freight due to our extensive network throughout the Northern Territory, and we believe local residents feel the benefits,” Mr Ezzy said.

The contract aims to ensure Sea Swift’s fuel distribution across NT will reach such sites such as Galiwinku, Gapuwiyak, Maningrida, Milikapiti, Milingimbi, Milyakburra, Minjilang, Wurrumiyanga, Numbulwar, Pirlangimpi, Ramingining, Umbakumba and Warruwi.

The fuel storage of Sea Swift’s 26 vessels and mobile assets serve the power generation, fishing, retail, defence and mining industries. Sea Swift’s 30-year operations throughout NT and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities stem from depots in Darwin, Gove, Groote Eylandt, Cairns, Weipa, Seisia, Horn Island, Badu Island and Thursday Island.
