Bunkering firm Vitol Bunkers on Thursday (28 July) said it has extended its bunkering services to Jebel Ali (the largest container port in the Middle East) and to Port Rashid Cruise Terminal, Dubai, as of this month.
This represents another step by Vitol to address the supply requirements of strategic marine customers in key Middle Eastern locations, said the firm.
“Vessels visiting Jebel Ali will now have access to Vitol Bunkers’ quality marine products produced at FRCL (the Vitol-owned refinery in Fujairah). These include a range of marine fuel grades as well as bio-marine fuels for customers wishing to mitigate their carbon emissions,” said Vitol Bunkers.
“We wish to thank Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA), the Government of Dubai and our global strategic customers for their support. Vitol Bunkers will endeavour to not only support the pivotal position of the UAE as a maritime supply hub, but to assist in its ambitions to be a leader in decarbonisation.”
