Global physical supplier and trader of marine fuels Bomin Group has expanded its product portfolio with the supply of 0.1% maximum sulphur Ultra-Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (ULSFO) bunker fuel at the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp region (ARA) region.
The company’s five Antwerp-based bunkering barges will be able to support deliveries at in Rotterdam, Ghent, Flushing, and other ports across the ARA.
One of the uses for ULSFO grade will be in the application of helping shipowners and operators transition their fuel system from 3.5% sulphur to 0.5% prior to the January 1, 2020 deadline, it suggests.
In the second half of 2019, shipowners will benefit economically from consuming 0.1% fuel to clean their high-sulphur fuel-systems rather than cleaning, or needing to dry-dock pre-2020 to ensure compliance with 0.5% sulphur in 2020.
Without cleaning or conducting several voyages on 0.1% fuel, shipowners risk not being compliant in time.
“We are pleased that we can offer our customers a high quality product which is not only compliant with the current ECA rules, but also the upcoming 2020 regulations,” comments Angela Beyens, Commercial Manager, Bomin Belgium.
“Bomin is committed to working in partnership with our customers to provide the highest level of service standards, maximizing operational and cost efficiencies, as well as ensuring the delivery of quality products where our customers need them.”
Bomin also provides a range of other bunker products in the ARA region, including IFO 380 and DMA 0.1%.
“ARA is one of the most important regions for our customers, with real demand for a full spectrum of quality products and the provision of ULSFO will ensure that we can continue to provide the energy they need to compliantly fuel all their operations,” notes Jan Christensen, Head of Global Bunker Operations, Bomin Group.
