Aegean to deploy new tanker to Gibraltar

Supplier takes delivery of its seventh double-hull bunkering tanker in 2009.





Updated on 25 Aug 2009 08:12 GMT

Bunker supplier Aegean Marine Petroleum Network Inc. has announced that it has taken delivery of the Kerkyra, a 6,290 dwt double-hull bunkering tanker newbuild from Qingdao Hyundai Shipyard in China.

The vessel is expected to be deployed to the company's market located in Gibraltar.

Commenting on the company's latest acquisition, E. Nikolas Tavlarios, President, said "Including the Kerkyra, Aegean has taken delivery of seven double-hull bunkering vessels to date in 2009. As we continue to execute our well-capitalized growth plan, we expect to enhance our ability to meet the strong demand for modern tonnage and strengthen Aegean's leading brand for the global supply of marine fuel.

"We intend to deploy the Kerkyra to Gibraltar in order to further develop future sales volumes in this broad and attractive region."

In October 2008, Aegean took delivery of the Santorini, a 4,600 dwt double-hull bunkering tanker, which was also deployed to the Gibraltar market. The vessel replaced the Aegean Rose, which was redeployed to Piraeus.
