The Las Palmas Port Authority has posted a combined 28% increase in bunkering volume at La Luz Port (also called Las Palmas Port) and other marine facilities in Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain during 2017, reports La Vanguardia.
A total 449,215 metric tonnes (mt) of marine fuel were sold to vessels in 2017, higher than sales figures of 353,659 mt in the year before.
The increase has been attributed to an approximate 20% rise in international container traffic in the comparative period, according to the port authority.
It recorded a cargo handling volume of 90,683 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) in 2017, 12% up from 80,648 TEU in 2016.
Import and export figures have also respectively improved by 5.4% and 3.5% on year in 2017.
Total passenger traffic at the ports, including figures from the cruise sector, rose 25.69% to 519,514 in 2017 from 413,333 in the year before.
