World Fuel Services adds bunker tanker to UK ops

26 Sep 2018

World Fuel Services (WFS) has added the 3,100 DWT product tanker, Whitstar, to deliver marine fuel at UK terminals.

The vessel was deployed in early September 2018 to operate along the east and south coast of UK.

Owned by Whitaker Tankers, Whitstar was built in 2004 and is fitted with versatile deep well pumps capable of delivering fuel in volumes of up to 450m3/hr.

The vessel also hosts epoxy coated cargo tanks, closed loading and has tank level radars fitted and its hull is also strengthened to enable access to NAABSA berths situated in
tidal waters.

“This latest addition to the WFS-operated tanker fleet is large enough to keep storage terminals topped up but small enough to deliver bunkers to vessels,” says WFS.

“In chartering this vessel, greater control of the supply chain has been achieved with enhanced flexibility and versatility that enables WFS to provide fuel solutions together with operational excellence.”
