The focus of SOILL’s Blackheath terminal is on refining fish oils due to the high yield of omega 3 nutrients inherent in these oils. This, therefore, makes it ideal for various feed applications and is in high demand globally. South African fish oil internationally has great appeal due to the exceptional quality of the oil, as well as the lack of heavy metals and other toxins that are prevalent in other sources of fish oil.
The Blackheath terminal has 1200 tons of storage for our production requirements in addition to an area for the decanting of buckets and drums. This enables us to service both big and small oil handling requirements. A dedicated tanker for the distribution and collection of products increases our flexibility and assists in providing our customers with excellent service levels.
This independent terminal has its own in-house maintenance team as well as a laboratory to ensure the delivery of a service that is efficient and on-time. Our laboratory conducts the basic tests required for oil quality, including moisture analysis, free fatty acid tests (FFA) and gas chromatography analysis.
