Bunker Holding subsidiary Bunker One on Thursday said it will be starting full operations at the Caribbean region in the Jamaican ports, off Jamaica and Trinidad effective 1 December, 2018.
The company will be offering supply of RMK500 / RMG380 / MGO 0,1 in all locations within Kingston Harbour inner and outer anchorage, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Port Esquival, Rocky Point, Port Antonia, OPL Jamaica and OPL Trinidad.
It will deploy two bunkering tankers, the MT Kalymnos (IMO : 9382126) and MT Keflonia (IMO: 9382188), for bunkering operations in ports and offshore operations.
Both major-approved bunkering vessels have a capacity of 5,200 metric tonnes (mt) for intermediate fuel oil and 900 mt for marine gas oil.
Georgia Kounalakis and Theodoris Motsenigos will be responsible for all commercial and operational matters.
“Again we have shown agility and prompt decision power by employing MT Kalymnos and MT Keflonia, two tankers with extensive operation experience in the area – and taken on a team of industry professionals,” said Peter Zachariassen, Global Director at Bunker One.
“We believe that there are substantial synergies to be captured with our existing footprint in the US, the Gulf of Mexico and South America – ensuring our leadership position leading into 2020.”
