Peter Vucins, CEO of GES says: ‘Having built the terminal from scratch, we have once again proven our world-leading capability to develop strategic assets on greenfield sites. We are pleased to have concluded this sale to Paragon Capital and are confident that they will do a great job as the new owners. I want to thank the SRS team for a great performance over the last six years since the terminal construction began, most notably in relation to our excellent HSE track record and awareness.’

‘We are delighted to have completed the acquisition of this state-of-the-art storage terminal in UAE which is run by an excellent team. We strongly believe that UAE will be a leading force in the energy sector, and this asset aligns very well with our strategy and investment thesis,’ adds Susmit Gupta, managing director of Paragon Capital.
