RUBiS Energy Bermuda Ltd. has entered into a binding agreement to acquire Bermuda Gas & Utility Company Limited from the Ascendant Group.

Graham Redford, Managing Director of RUBiS Energy Bermuda Ltd, says: “The Bermuda Gas acquisition represents a strategic expansion of RUBiS’ existing LPG business in Bermuda. RUBiS is currently the Island’s leading importer of LPG and the integration of the supply and distribution chains will allow us to expand infrastructure capabilities to better serve our customers.

When we approached the Ascendant Group, and started discussions, one of the critical components that we immediately identified was that we had to ensure that no jobs would be lost as a result of the acquisition. Subsequently, I am happy to announce today that all 18 Bermuda Gas employees will remain with the Company.

The second critical component was that we had to be able to honour all existing supply agreements. Again, I can assure all of Bermuda Gas’ customers that existing supply agreements and equipment warranties are secure.”

Mr. Redford continued: “One of the key advantages of this acquisition to our staff and customers, is being able to combine the knowledge and expertise of RUBiS’ global LPG operations with a company that understands the complexities of the local business environment and is 100% staffed by Bermudians.

RUBiS’ mission is to consistently, safely and effectively deliver customer-driven quality energy solutions for Bermuda. This acquisition certainly allows us to continue to live up to our mission statement as it allows us to strengthen our purchasing power, expand our service capabilities, improve our resource utilisation, and reduce our procurement and administrative burdens in the retail and commercial business segments.

But most importantly, it also enables us to provide the greatest value to our existing, and future, customers and it will allow us to provide Bermuda greater stability in the existing commodity environment.”

RUBiS Energy Bermuda Ltd. announced today that they will be conducting a Tier 1 Oil Spill response training exercise in conjunction with the Royal Bermuda Regiment on Wednesday March 2nd and Thursday March 3rd, 2016. A small group of observers from the US Coast Guard, who are on island to conduct meetings and provide advice in relation to the island’s Search and Recovery and general Maritime enforcement capabilities, will also attend the exercise on March 3rd.

Graham Redford, Managing Director of RUBiS explained: “The aim of this exercise is to test all functions of the internal RUBiS Oil Spill Response Management System, along with external testing of the Island’s ability for an appropriate tiered response in the event of an Oil Spill. We will be working with Oil Spill Response Ltd (OSRL), a global partner of RUBiS. OSRL is the largest international industry-funded cooperative which exists to respond to oil spills anywhere in the world by providing preparedness, response and intervention services from a number of strategically placed locations. We are also pleased to welcome a number of our RUBiS affiliates from the Caribbean who are flying in to observe the training and exercise.

As the leader in the local fuel industry, helping protect the environment is a fundamental responsibility of RUBiS, and one we take very seriously. This exercise is part of our continued commitment towards oil spill and emergency response preparedness, and one of the most effective ways of assessing response plans and procedures, determining the readiness of responders, clarifying roles and responsibilities, promoting awareness of potential incidents and preparing for real spill events.

There will be two days of training; the first day will be on site at our Ferry Reach Depot where we will look at notification exercises to test our response process and mobilisation procedures. We will also be conducting table-top exercises designed to test the risk of our operations and allow for analysis of the incident response along with capability reviews of RUBIS’ tactical and emergency management organisation, our personnel capacity and competence, ours and the Island’s tiered response arrangements and a capability review of our training and exercise programmes.”

Matthew Simmons, Operations Manager from OSRL continued: “A robust exercise and drill programme provides RUBiS’ response and emergency management teams with the opportunity to practice skills that will be required in an emergency, to work together closely and develop working relationships with key stakeholders and to make complex decisions. Using a well-designed exercise will test response capabilities including plans, people, equipment and systems

This exercise will bring together the key personnel likely to be involved in a real incident, will further develop working relationships and encourage teamwork. Utilising OSRL’s expertise in incident response, we are able to provide exercise and drill development, facilitation, observation and involvement to help test and improve their preparedness and response capability.”

Lt. Col. Foster-Brown, Commanding Officer of the Royal Bermuda Regiment added: “Environmental protection is part of our disaster relief capability, and one which we take seriously and hope to expand, pending the decision by Government on a potential lead Maritime role for the Regiment,  so we are delighted to support this important oil spill exercise.”

Mr. Redford concluded: “The safety, health and security of everyone we work with is of paramount importance to us, so the equipment deployment exercise that will be held on the March 3rd in the Great Sound will focus on developing all of the stakeholders’ ability to deploy Tier 1 equipment in a safe and effective way. We do ask that the marine public stay a safe distance from the exercises which, dependent on the weather, will be on the southern side of Morgan’s Point.”

RUBiS Energy Bermuda Ltd. announced today that Mr. David Rose, Managing Director, has retired after 44 years of combined service with Shell Bermuda and RUBiS Energy. 

Mr. Rose began his career with Shell Bermuda as a Management Trainee on November 1, 1971.  At the time of Mr. Rose’s employment, Shell Bermuda had made a decision to implement this local trainee programme to ensure management continuity for the future.  Mr. Rose was recommended by Stanley Marshall and commenced his employment under his direction.

Mr. Marshall continued: “Over the course of David’s career he served in a number of positions including Aviation Manager, Outside Services Manager and Health, Safety and Environment  Advisor for the local company as well as several other islands in the Caribbean. In 1986 I had the pleasure of handing over my responsibilities as the Marketing Manager to David.”

Mr. Rose was promoted to Oil Products Manager in 1999 and when RUBiS purchased the assets of Shell Bermuda in 2006 he was appointed Managing Director of RUBiS Energy Bermuda Ltd.

From L-R: Jermaine Simions – Sales & Marketing Manager RUBiS Energy Bermuda, Jeffrey Borges - Recruitment and Media Relations Officer for the St. John’s Ambulance Association, Michael Terceira -  Office Manager of the Terceira’s Group, Chevaun Simmons -  Events Officer for the St. Johns Ambulance Association and Dianna Armstrong - RUBiS Energy Sales and Marketing Representative

Hamilton, Bermuda, April 13th, 2015:

Today Mr. David Rose, Managing Director of RUBiS Energy Bermuda Limited, announced their continued support for the St. John’s Ambulance Association.

Mr. Rose said, “RUBiS Energy Bermuda has been supporting the St. John’s Ambulance Association with an Annual Fuel Grant since 2008. St. John’s provides an ambulance service designed to cover public events, and we are proud to be able to support this vital community service. What is even more valuable this year is that the Terceira’s Group, operators of the East Broadway RUBiS Station has partnered with us to increase the value of this grant to $5,500.00.”

Michael Terceira, Office Manager of the Terceira’s Group said; “We are pleased to facilitate the distribution of RUBiS’ annual grant to the St. John’s Ambulance Association. We believe strongly in the work that the St. John volunteers do, and salute each and every one of them. To this end, it brings us great satisfaction to be able to contribute to help stretch RUBiS’ donation further.”

Jeffrey Borges, Recruitment and Media Relations Officer for the St. John’s Ambulance Association said: “St. John’s Ambulance provides medical coverage at a number of events throughout Bermuda.  Our trained Medic First Responder volunteers attend a number of events each week throughout the island and provide ambulance coverage in the case of an emergency.  St. John’s Ambulance is extremely grateful for the continued patronage from RUBiS.  Without the support of RUBiS we would find ourselves in a difficult position; fuelling our vehicles as they are on the road each week.    We thank you RUBiS for your continued support.” 

Mr. Jermaine Simons, Sales & Marketing Manager of RUBiS Energy Bermuda Limited said, “The St. John’s Ambulance Association’s team of active uniformed first-aid responders has been attending to the needs of Bermuda since 1894. After a century, this organisation has expanded to provide supplemental ambulance coverage for over 253 public events each year. Many of these are charity or sporting events, operated by organisations with limited funding. We also recognise the many volunteer members who selflessly contribute their time, usually on a weekend or holiday, and expertise without any personal financial gain.”

Continuing he said, “RUBiS is very proud to be able to assist such a worthy cause and are sure that our donation of fuel will enable the St. John’s Ambulance Association to continue the fine work they do for all sectors of the Bermuda community.”
