UK-based marine fuel supplier Greenergy on Monday (10 February) announced it has entered into time-charter agreements for two bunkering vessels based in the Irish Sea and English Channel.
This marks another step in Greenergy’s expansion in the marine fuels sector, it said.
The two bunkering vessels, the Bergen Troll and the Northern Skaggerrak, have the capability to bunker a variety of fuels, including marine gasoil, fuel oil for ships fitted with scrubbers, and IMO 2020 compliant 0.5% fuel oil.
“This an extension of our existing bunkering operations, giving us the ability to supply more fuel grades to more marine fuel customers, wherever they need it,” said Greenergy Group Head of Marine Fuels Varun Chhabria.
“With two bunkering vessels at our disposal, we will have greater control of our supply chain, supporting the personalised service our customers have come to expect from us.”
Greenergy entered the marine fuel market in 2018 to meet emerging demand for low sulphur marine fuels ahead of new limits on ship emissions.
In addition to its bunkering operations, Greenergy provides national fuel supply, storing and supplying marine fuels by truck from Navigator Thames (south east of England), Tyne (north east of England), Eastham (north west of England), Grangemouth (Scotland), Cardiff (Wales) and in Ireland, from Dublin and Foynes.
