Bunker fuel sales volume at Rotterdam port up 6% on year to 10.8 million in 2022

27 Jan 2023

Sales of bunker fuel at Rotterdam port rose 5.88% on year in 2022, according to the Port of Rotterdam on Thursday (26 January).

“Last year, maritime shipping bunkered significantly more fuel in Rotterdam; 10.8 million compared to 10.2 million up to 2021,” it noted.

“With that, demand for fuel oil, gas oil, methanol and LNG was 6.3% higher than in 2021.”

Notable was the increase in demand for biofuel-blended bunkers where demand rose from 301,000 mt to 790,000 mt, it highlighted.

For the first time, some sea-going vessels bunkered methanol and from the summer of 2023 sea-going vessels will arrive on a regular basis to bunker this fuel.

“Two years after the introduction of the bunker licence for bunker fuel suppliers in Rotterdam, the Port of Rotterdam Authority and the Antwerp-Bruges Port Authority announced late last year that it will make bunker measuring systems mandatory. With the measure, the port authorities aim to make the ARA bunker market more transparent, efficient and reliable,” it continued.

“The good results of 2022 confirm Rotterdam’s position as Europe’s leading bunker port.”
