About BBT

Bonaire Brandstof Terminals B.V. (BBT) was established in April 2021 and is 100% owned by the Dutch state. BBT’s mission is to ensure that Bonaire has sufficient energy. Energy to live, to work and to enjoy. 

BBT provides energy by storing commonly used fuels safely on the island and by contributing to a sustainable transition of the energy supply on Bonaire. BBT ensures that there are sufficient fuels to generate electricity, enable mobility on Bonaire and from Bonaire to the rest of the world and produce clean drinking water. An energy supply that is not only reliable, affordable and safe, but soon also more and more sustainable.

At the moment, the energy supply on Bonaire is not regulated well enough. The existing storage facilities are either no longer available (BOPEC) or do no longer comply with laws and regulations (Hato and Airport). BBT must provide a structural solution that contributes to making inhabitants and visitors of Bonaire able to always use reliable, affordable and safe energy. To live, work and enjoy.
