Italian refiner Societa Anonima Raffinerie Sarde (SARAS) on Wednesday (21 August) said it will start supply of 0.5% sulphur limit fuel oil at the ports of Sarroch and Cagliari from 1 September 2019 through its wholly owned Geneva-based subsidiary Saras Trading SA.
Marine refuelling operations will be carried out by the modern bunkering vessel M/T Atlantic.
“All products are produced locally at the Sarlux refinery,” it states.
“The service is offered to meet the needs of ships arriving and departing from the above mentioned ports as well as to offer further supply options to the several ships that pass along the Sicilian Channel and the Tyrrhenian Sea.
“Through this activity the Port of Cagliari will be provided a service not available until now.
“Saras is proud to continue its sustainable growth path and to be able to contribute to the industrial and commercial development of Sardinia.”
