Bunker One Expands in Freeport
Bunker One has announced its newest addition to its Offshore US Gulf and Caribbean fleet, M/T Waltz. The physical supplier, that is now one of the largest suppliers in the Caribbean, will commence operations in Freeport from 1 June.
The M/T Waltz will inaugurate Bunker One’s entry as a physical supplier to Freeport Bahamas supplying at Outer anchorage and Freeport Offshore, complementing the already well-established Offshore US Gulf operation with M/T Barbarica.
The fully equipped bunkering vessel, M/T Waltz, will carry major oil vetting and approvals along with an experienced crew to ensure the highest level of service with high maneuverability having twin engines, rudder propellers, and high efficiency pumps with a capacity of 750 cubic meters/hour.
This expansion comes ahead of the challenging industry-wide demands presented by the transition to IMO 2020 and the global sulphur cap on marine fuels.
Peter Zachariassen, Global Director, Bunker One states: “I am very pleased with the expansion of our global fuel supply network and I see strong synergies across our well-established US and Caribbean operations. The voice of our customers is key to everything we do – and it’s a pleasure to be able to accommodate their needs, wherever they are.”
