New barge operated with company’s biolubricants outlines commitment to environment and ship operators in Belgium

Marine lubricant provider Total Lubmarine has welcomed the naming of the newest addition to its fleet, Trafuco 7. The naming ceremony for the newly-built vessel took place at The Port of Antwerp, in Belgium, in front of 80 guests. 

Trafuco 7 is a 795m3 capacity barge divided into six compartments that will transport Total Lubmarine’s oils, system oils and trunk piston engine oils, including the Talusia, Aurelia, Atlanta and Disola ranges, with a minimum order of 2,000 liters per grade. The vessel will serve The Port of Antwerp, and will be operated using Total Lubmarine’s Bioneptan and Biomultis biolubricants for the stern tube, bow thruster and deck equipment, while voluntarily adhering to the port’s Environmental Ship Index (ESI) scheme.

Furthermore, Trafuco 7 conforms to the latest international safety standards. More specifically, its double-hull build adheres to the International Maritime Organisation’s MARPOL Annex I Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Oil.

Representatives from Total Lubmarine, Total Belgium and barge owner and operator Trafuco NV attended the naming ceremony at The Port of Antwerp, which is the biggest port area in the world and handles approximately 14,200 vessels, 191,000,000t of cargo and 8,600,000 TEU annually.

Serge Dal Farra, Global Marketing Manager, Total Lubmarine, commented, “The addition of Trafuco 7 to Total Lubmarine’s operated fleet is testament to our commitment to continually upgrading our services and standards to meet the needs of customer vessels operating in Belgium. As Europe’s most central seaport, The Port of Antwerp is not only a gateway to the continent for ship operators, but also provides excellent links to more than 500 direct destinations all over the world. The port is actively engaged in promoting sustainability and encourages a collaborative approach to protecting and enhancing the environment; a mission that we are committed to and have recognized through the application of our biolubricants to Trafuco 7.”

The introduction of the Trafuco 7 is a result of Total Lubmarine’s growth and follows on from the recent introduction of new barge Atlantic Energy in Rotterdam Port and Europoort in Rotterdam.
