GAC Bunker Fuels and its local partner in Sri Lanka, Interocean Energy (IOE), have moved the bunker barge MT 'Kandy' to Galle to meet growing demand for bunker supplies at the port on the southern tip of the island nation.

Thanks to its proximity to international east-west shipping lanes, Galle is a popular choice for vessels taking on supplies. For more than two decades, the GAC Group has taken advantage of that strategic location, with its Ship Supply base at Galle with a fleet of twelve craft serving ships passing off port limits (OPL). Now, GAC Bunker Fuels is adding the convenience of bunker deliveries by barge to the GAC package of services on offer there.

Jointly operated by GAC Bunker Fuels and IOE, the MT 'Kandy' is equipped to store, transport and deliver 770MT of IFO 380cst and 250MT of MGO fuel, along with 50MT of fresh water. Deliveries will be made within the port or at Galle anchorage and OPL. Its relocation from Colombo comes ahead of the launch of GAC Bunker Fuels' new supply service at the nearby port of Harambantota, expected in the coming four to six weeks, in direct response to increased volumes, rising demand and expanding marine operations in the region.

GAC Bunker Fuels offers competitive prices at all Sri Lankan ports with the support of its carefully vetted business partners. For more information, contact us at
