Bunkering firm Vitol Bunkers on Thursday (22 July) said it has added its first offshore location to its US Gulf Coast (USGC) and Caribbean supply offering.
For the first time deep draft vessels will be able to benefit from Vitol Bunkers’ quality marine products and services.
This deepwater supply point complements Vitol Bunkers’ existing presence in port locations across the US which include: Houston (Port Arthur, Beaumont, Lake Charles, Freeport, Galveston, Texas City) New Orleans, Lower Mississippi River and the Caribbean locations of St Eustatia, St Maarten, St Kitts and St Barth.
USGC Offshore will be served by Mt Morholmen, a new addition to the fleet. This highly specialised barge is equipped with a maneuverable fender system offering its customers operational safety and protection for their vessels during delivery, it says.
