Advantis Bunkering starts VLSFO deliveries in Sri Lanka

17 Dec 2019

Advantis Bunkering, the bunker supply arm of Hayleys Advantis Limited, has commenced offering IMO2020 grade Very Low Sulfur Fuel Oil (VLSFO) in Sri Lanka, it says.

The firm which comprises of three physical bunker suppliers operating in Sri Lankan waters, namely Lanka Maritime Services Limited, Lanka Bunkering Services Limited and Moceti International Pvt Limited, received its first cargo parcel of VLSFO in Colombo from the UAE on 9 December.

The development comes with the shipping sector preparing for the new IMO regulation to lower the cap on sulphur in marine fuels to 0.5% from the current 3.5%, which has led to a marked rise in demand for low-sulphur marine fuel supplies.

 “We are happy to be the first company in Sri Lanka to offer VLSFO bunkers in Sri Lanka, catering to the growing demands of our clientele,” said Praneeth Gunawardena – Director of Advantis Bunkering.

“Being certified for both ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems and OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series, Advantis Bunkering has always strived to maintain an exceptional quality level in both our products and services, which paved the way for us to be the pioneer in ushering in this new grade of fuel to Sri Lanka.”
