UK bunker supplier Greenergy, also the largest road fuel supplier in the country, will be commencing supply of marine fuel containing maximum 0.5% sulphur, also known as Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (VLSFO), from November onwards.
“We are responding to customer demand,” explains Varun Chhabria, Group Head of Marine Fuels at Greenergy.
“Our customers appreciate the high levels of supply reliability and personalised service we have been able to provide for supply of marine gasoil (0.1% sulphur), and would now like the choice of also purchasing marine fuel containing 0.5% sulphur.”
Greenergy will supply 0.5% sulphur marine fuel initially from Cardiff as part of a phased rollout.
This will complement Greenergy’s existing supply of marine gasoil (0.1% sulphur) from Navigator Thames (south east of England), Tyne (north east of England), Eastham (north west of England), Grangemouth (Scotland), Cardiff (Wales) and Dublin and Foynes (Ireland).
The company entered the marine fuel market in October 2018, leveraging the distillate supply chains and infrastructure already in place for its road fuels business to meet emerging demand for marine gasoil containing maximum 0.1% sulphur.
