Total Charters in New Barge Capacity in Germany

Monday, January 28, 2008
Total Marine Fuels in Germany has chartered in additional barge capacity to meet growing demand for fuel oil from customers in Hamburg and along the Kiel Canal. Total is the main bunker supplier in the Kiel Canal, and is currently selling in excess of 350,000 metric tons of fuel per year in the region. It has had the double-hulled, 1,450-ton capacity bunker barge Elbingerode on charter since the beginning of 2007. Now, in response to continuing increases in demand, it has supplemented that with the charter of the Spandau DT61, which has capacity for about 1,100 tons of heavy fuel oil and 100 tons of gasoil. TOTAL has a Kiel Canal bunker installation from whose four jetties it can supply all grades of heavy fuel oil, both high and low-sulphur, Marine Diesel Oil and Marine Gas Oil, and can also truck it to German ports. It has barge-loading facilities at Brunsbuttel and Hamburg, and about 12,000 m³ tank capacity at the latter port’s Vopak Terminal.
