Chilean supply firm Copec Marine Fuels has announced that it will be using the bunker tanker Tamina to deliver fuel to cruise ships calling at the strategic location of Puerto Williams during the summer season, which runs from October to March.

Located at the southern tip of Chile, the small port is a refuelling point used by cruise vessels sailing to Ushuaia, the Antarctic, the Falklands, Punta Arenas, and Puerto Montt, amongst others. Cruise ships that are less than 150 metres in length are able to bunker at berth, whilst those with a length greater than 150 metres are able to refuel at four anchorage points at the port.

Summer is the main season of the year for Copec in Punta Arenas, Puerto Williams and Puerto Montt. It takes around 28 hours to navigate between Punta Arenas and Port Williams, whilst the Argentinian port of Ushuaia is located just 40 kilometres from Puerto Williams.

The Ice-class, double-hull Tamina has a total storage capacity of 1,450 cubic metres and will supply low-sulphur marine gas oil (MGO LS) to clients in Puerto Williams.

According to recent vessel tracking data, the Tamina called at the European ports of Frederikshavn, Copenhagen, Gothenburg and Uddevalla between June and July, before calling at Colon, Panama, on 8th August.
