24 Nov 2020

Danish marine fuel supplier Bunker One on Monday (23 November) announced it has expanded offshore bunkering operations to northern Brazil in line with its strategy and ambition to increase global activities and meet customer requirements.

To provide access to more flexible offshore bunkering solutions, the company said Bunker One (Brazil) has expanded its offshore operation 50 nautical miles from the ITAQUI coastline by adding the tanker MT Thornton to its fleet. The tanker will be supplying VLSFO and LSMGO and is fully equipped for offshore bunkering. 

Bunker One stated this new move in Brazil will boost its ambitious growth plans not only for the South American region but globally.

Bunker One first entered Brazil in 2017 and is present in the Port of Rio de Janeiro, where the company has tailor made its operation to meet the specific needs of its customers.

“Brazil continues to be of strategic importance to Bunker One. Expanding our presence to northern Brazil is in line with our ambition to strengthen our position in the Americas,” said Flavio Ribeiro, Managing Director, Bunker One Brazil.

“This region is of vital importance to Brazilian export of commodities, and our presence there will provide our customers with more flexibility in terms of bunkering options on their voyages.

“We listen to our customers’ requests for places of delivery, and we want to continue to meet the increased demands of our business partners”.

The company notes that having a large fleet at its disposal gives the company more flexibility at providing prompt and agile bunker delivery services. 

It added that Bunker One’s tanker fleet is highly specialised and equipped for offshore bunkering operations and ensures the highest level of quality, safety and efficiency of supply. 

“I am very pleased that we can sustain momentum and stay on course with our plans to expand our operational reach,” said Peter Zachariassen, CEO, Bunker One.

“As we continue with our ambitious growth plans, we will, of course, remain dedicated to our business partners and maintain our strong focus on providing our customers with services of the highest quality.”

In May 2020, Bunker One strengthened its portfolio in the US Gulf, the Caribbean and West Africa with the addition of MT Furuholmen, MT Lilo Swan, and MT Enford.
