Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) has announced that it has a new fleet of double-hull barges operating in the ports of Vitoria, Praia Mole and Tubarao.

The fleet comprises three vessels: CD Inga, CD Leblon and CD Ilha Bela.

Whilst the Inga and Leblon are to be used to store and supply both intermediate fuel oil (IFO) and marine gas oil (MGO) product, the Ilha Bela will be supplying only MGO.
