UAE: International Marine & Energy doubles bunker barge fleet to six vessels

25 Jan 2023

UAE-based International Marine & Energy has added three new bunker barges to its bunkering fleet, increasing the total number to six vessels, it said.

Since receiving the license to supply bunkering products in 2020, IME has been operating three barges within the UAE territory, focused on Sharjah and Khorfakkan.

The six barges – MT Havana, MT Cavendish, MT Eton, MT Compton, MT NMS 402, and MT Pardi – deliver marine gas and fuel oil conforming to ISO 8217 standards.

“Our strategic expansion, including the addition of three new barges, builds on our market credibility as a trusted and fully licensed supplier of petroleum products,” said Ali Fathi [Photo: Right], the founder of IME.

“Securing the license was a testament to our commitment to providing quality fuel services and our focus on ensuring the highest maritime safety standards.

“As a homegrown UAE company, we will continue to contribute towards the nation’s reputation as a trusted global bunkering hub, given that nearly 90% of goods traded globally are carried across our oceans.”

Hamed Fathi [Photo: Left], Director & General Counsel of IME, added: “With regional economies poised for further growth in 2023 according to the World Bank, the UAE’s status as a hub for bunkering will gain further traction in 2023.”

“Keeping marine and shipping channels seamlessly moving requires a robust supply chain of fuel services, which our fleet and teams continue to deliver.

“Having established strong links with shipping lines from the Far East to the West, we are looking to expand further across European, North, and South American markets to broaden our global footprint while continuing to scale up our presence in Singapore and Europe.”
