Bunker Holding subsidiary Bunker One will be starting physical bunkering operations at Freeport, Bahamas, supplying at Outer anchorage and Freeport Offshore, with the M/T Waltz from 1 June, it says.
The fully equipped bunkering vessel M/T Waltz will carry major oil vetting and approvals. It is equipped with twin engines, rudder propellers, and high efficiency pumps with a capacity of 750 cubic meters/hour.
This expansion comes ahead of the challenging industry-wide demands presented by the transition to IMO 2020 and the global sulphur cap on marine fuels.
“The continued growth of our physical supply platform will allow our customers flexibility and choice in their fuel purchasing requirements as we enter 2020, creating efficient ‘bunkers only’ port calls,” said Georgia Kounalakis, Managing Director, Bunker One (Gulf of Mexico & Caribs).
“Our goal is to support our customers’ operations with effective, safe logistics and appropriate product availability as their preferred marine fuel provider.”
Peter Zachariassen, Global Director, Bunker One states: “I am very pleased with the expansion of our global fuel supply network and I see strong synergies across our well-established US and Caribbean operations.
“The voice of our customers is key to everything we do – and it’s a pleasure to be able to accommodate their needs, wherever they are.”
