Washington state marina adds ValvTect

ValvTect has added the Swantown Marine Fueling Station at Swantown Marina in Port of Olympia, Wash., as a certified fueling facility for ValvTect marine gasoline and ValvTect marine diesel.

A deep-water port on Puget Sound, Swantown is the seventh-largest marina in Washington state, with 733 slips and boat haulout and repair. The fueling station will be open seven days a week.

“The port is committed to creating infrastructure to support and significantly expand recreational opportunities and regional visitation,” said Ed Galligan, executive director of the Port of Olympia, in a statement.

“This same infrastructure will also broaden the port’s support of commercial maritime activities in the area. Swantown is now a full-service marina, which will not only make access easier for local boaters, but help promote tourism in Thurston County. The fact that we also will operate the most environmentally friendly facility in Puget Sound is a particular source of pride. We are proud to partner with ValvTect at our new facility.”
