They bought Cloghan Point Oil Terminal near Carrickfergus from AES Power in a multimillion pound deal. And in October 2016, it bought out its joint venture partner, Norwegian oil giant Statoil ASA, to acquire full ownership of the Maydown oil terminal in Co Londonderry.
Go Power also supplies electricity in the business market, with government and council contracts to supply electricity. It has gone from employing seven people in 2012 to close to around 240. LCC’s oil division was established in 1997 to expand the range of fuels available to its customers.
