Landmark bunker barge delivery to a non-cruise ship in Malaga

16 May 2017 11:22 GMT

Peninsula Petroleum supplied bulk carrier with marine fuel on May 13.



Peninsula Petroleum has carried out the first bunker barge supply of marine fuel to a non-cruise vessel in Malaga since ship-to-ship deliveries restarted at the Spanish port last month.

The 37,729-deadweight-tonne (dwt) Ugljan arrived in Malaga last week from San Lorenzo, Argentina, to unload a cargo of soya beans. On Saturday, May 13, the bulk carrier was supplied with bunker fuel in a new milestone for the port.

An industry source told Bunker Index on Tuesday that the Gibraltar-flagged Hercules 100 carried out the landmark delivery without sourcing product from Malaga's petroleum products operator, Oil Distribution Terminals (ODT).

As previously reported last month, bunker barge deliveries restarted at Malaga on April 2 with Peninsula Petroleum's supply of marine fuel to the cruise ship Pullmantur Horizon in an operation that involved transporting fuel from Algeciras.

Since then, Bunker Index understands that eight different cruise ships have been refuelled during their respective stopovers. This figure is set to increase today when the Costa Magica, operated by Costa Cruises, is supplied with bunkers.

In terms of passenger figures, Malaga is the fifth-biggest cruise port in Spain after Barcelona, Baleares, Las Palmas and Santa Cruz de Tenerife. According to data for 2014, the Andalucian port received 407,870 passengers and was ranked 35th in Europe.
