ExxonMobil has started barge deliveries of two grades of IMO-compliant, low-sulphur marine fuel, namely, DMA 0.001%S [Ultra Low Sulphur Marine Diesel] and DMB 0.01%S [Low Sulphur Marine Diesel] at the Port of Tauranga, New Zealand.
The service, which came into operation on 4 May, enhances the company’s offer in the Asia Pacific region, it told Singapore bunker publication Manifold Times in a statement.
“The arrival of MT Kormako, first and only bunker barge in Port of Tauranga, enhances ExxonMobil’s bunkering operation at the Port of Tauranga as fuel deliveries are now available for vessels berthed at Sulphur Point along with land-based refuelling for those moored at the port,” it stated.
“As a result, vessels will no longer have to wait for a berth to become available to refuel.
“This significantly reduces vessel wait times and assist with port congestion situation at Port of Tauranga.”
