OW Bunker charters additional barge in Panama

Bunker supplier expands supply capacity in Panama with the addition of the double-hulled Star Goethals.





Updated on 22 May 2014 08:03 GMT

OW Bunker, one of the world's leading physical distributors and resellers of marine fuels, today announced that it has time chartered an additional barge in Panama to further strengthen its physical operations.

OW Bunker's new vessel in the region is the 3778 dwt, double-hulled Star Goethals [pictured - foreground] which is equipped to deliver a full range of quality products, including low sulphur and high sulphur fuel, as well as marine gasoil (MGO). This complements the 3255 dwt Star Baltic [pictured - background], which OW Bunker has been utilising since 2010. Both vessels have fast pumping rates to quickly and efficiently provide customers with a wide range of fully tested and independently verified marine fuels.

Commenting on the news, Adrian Tolson, Regional Manager, North America, OW Bunker said: "Panama’s marine fuel market is undergoing a period of change, driven by the widening of the Canal which will exert a shift in regional trade routes and impact fuel demands across the Americas. As these dynamics continue to evolve, OW Bunker is committed to helping ship owners and operators plan their fuel sourcing throughout the Americas, including Panama. Boosting our physical infrastructure by time chartering another barge, further enhances our delivery capacity and underlines our commitment to providing customers with flexible and efficient solutions in this pivotal location. Furthermore, by coordinating physical distribution for customers through our network spanning the south and west coasts of North America, Panama and wider Latin America, OW Bunker is well positioned to work with customers in maximising their operational efficiencies going forward."

OW Bunker has been operating in Panama as a physical fuel distributor since 2009. Complementing this offering, the company also has physical distribution operations offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and in Houston, as well as recently launched operations at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in North America.
