Lubmarine celebrates barge naming

22 Nov 2013 12:53 GMT

Newly-built vessel, Atlantic Energy, will carry out deliveries of lubricants in the Netherlands.



Marine lubricant provider Total Lubmarine has welcomed the naming of the newest addition to its fleet, Atlantic Energy. The naming ceremony for the newly-built vessel took place on November 18th at Posttrans B.V. in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Atlantic Energy is a 1,560 deadweight tonne (dwt), double-hulled barge. It features a 35-metre bunker boom, allowing delivery to the largest container ships in the world calling at Rotterdam port and Europoort. The vessel's 16 cargo tanks will transport Total Lubmarine’s cylinder oils, system oils, and trunk piston engine oils.

Atlantic Energy is said to conform to the latest international safety standards. Its double-hull build adheres to the International Maritime Organization’s MARPOL Annex I Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Oil, Total Lubmarine said.

Representatives from Total Lubmarine, barge operator Posttrans B.V., and the ship owner Atlantic Horizon Group attended the naming ceremony.

Norbert Schieren, general manager, Total Lubmarine, commented: “The addition of the Atlantic Energy to the Total Lubmarine operated fleet is testament to our commitment to continually upgrading our services and standards to meet our customers’ needs. Rotterdam Port and Europoort are two of the most important ports for ship operators worldwide, as well as premium ports in our International Ports Directory. There was a real need for this new barge to ensure that our customers are not left without the crucial products necessary to keep ship operations running smoothly.”

The introduction of the Atlantic Energy is a result of the company’s growth, Total Lubmarine said. It follows on from the recent introduction of new barges in Singapore.

Total Lubmarine added that it plans to continue to expand with further additions to the fleet in strategic locations expected next year.

Total Lubmarine is a supplier of marine lubricants and greases. The company supplies to over 1,000 ports worldwide and has a sales and technical support team based in over 50 locations globally.
