Mammoth Bunker Vessel Planned

Wednesday, January 17, 2001
The Verenigde Tankrederij (VT) from Rotterdam will order the largest bunker vessel so far. With a size of 8,000 tons (135 m long) it is twice the size of the present largest bunker vessel. The company said that it responds to the ongoing up scaling of the shipping industry. Since it expects traffic in Rotterdam to grow further it is very likely VT will order a second vessel of the same size. At present a total of some 8.5 million tons of bunker oil is delivered to ships in the port area.
