TOTAL Doubles 500 cSt Offering at Fos-Lavera
TOTAL Marine Fuels has doubled its capacity to provide 500 cSt bunker fuel at the French port of Fos-Lavera, near Marseilles. TOTAL began offering the fuel at Fos-Lavera in January of this year, and has now doubled its 500 cSt storage facilities at the port from an initial 10,000 to 20,000 metric tons.
Several large bunker stems have already been sold, and Pascal Zoonekyndt, Zone Manager for Total France, says, “We continue to improve our logistics and product offer in line with the needs of our customers. The launch of 500 cSt in Fos-Lavera has been welcomed, particularly by the big container lines, and TOTAL’s dedicated barge jetty means that we can be more flexible than ever before in terms of deliveries.”
Product can be delivered to ships by two barges operating under charter to TOTAL, carrying between them 5,250 metric tons.
