Cepsa becomes first RMK 500 bunker supplier in Barcelona

24 Aug 2017 11:32 GMT

Company also extends supply capacity with the addition of the Spabunker 21.



Cepsa has announced that it has become the first supplier of RMK 500 marine fuel at the port of Barcelona, Spain.

The Spanish firm is extending the supply of RMK 500 to the Mediterranean after making it available to clients in the Strait of Gibraltar ports of Algeciras and Gibraltar, where it is also the only supplier of the fuel.

Cepsa has also extended the supply capacity of its fuel delivery service in Barcelona with the addition of the Spabunker 21.

RMK 500 is produced by Cepsa at its refinery in Gibraltar-San Roque and is similar to IFO 380, with a 3.5 percent sulphur content; however, it also has specific properties, such as its greater density and viscosity - and lower cost.

In Algeciras, Cepsa says it delivered more than one million tonnes of RMK 500 in 2016, whilst in Gibraltar the supplier started to make it available to customers in June 2017.

In addition to RMK 500 in Barcelona, Cepsa also supplies LSFO380, HSFO380, MGO and intermediate IFOs.

Deliveries are performed by the Spabunker 41, which has the capacity to transport up to 2,600 metric tonnes of fuel and 850 tonnes of MGO.

The newly added vessel, the Spabunker 21, has a fuel capacity of 3,600 tonnes and is able to store up to 850 tonnes of MGO.

In total, Cepsa claims to have carried out more than 1,100 operations at the Catalan port so far this year, amounting to more than 208,000 tonnes supplied mainly to cruise ships, ferries, container ships and tankers.

Cepsa says the new RMK 500 service in Barcelona is targeted towards "large ships, especially container ships, making long sea crossings".
