The Singapore branch of international bunkering firm Fratelli Cosulich Group in early September received delivery of launch craft Genoa. The vessel was built to support the company’s bunkering operations at the republic, learned Manifold Times.
“We built the launch craft in Singapore and it was delivered on 2 September,” shared Timothy Cosulich, CEO and Board Member of Fratelli Cosulich.
“We named it Genoa which is my home city to symbolise the strong relationship that we see between our home city and Singapore where we setup our presence here 30 years ago.
“The reason why we built it is simply to move our staff and cargo officers and colleagues within the port. They have to move around so it makes sense to have our own little launch to move people around.
“We wanted to have a big event to celebrate it but unfortunately due to the current situation we couldn’t; but it is still fortunate to have some good news to share.”
In July, Fratelli Cosulich received delivery of Grazia Cosulich – its seventh bunker tanker operating at the port of Singapore.
