Panama Canal to play a key role in changing regional marine fuel dynamics.

OW Bunker has  announced that it has time chartered an additional barge in Panama to further strengthen its physical operations. The move reinforces the company’s ongoing commitment to its customers operating along the Panama Canal, helping them to effectively navigate the region’s changing fuel dynamics.

OW Bunker’s new vessel in the region is the 3778 dwt, double-hulled Star Goethals which is equipped for delivering a full range of quality products, including low sulphur and high sulphur fuel, as well as MGO. This complements the 3255 dwt Star Baltic, which OW Bunker has been utilising since 2010.  Both vessels have fast pumping rates to quickly and efficiently provide customers with a wide range of fully tested and independently verified marine fuels.

Adrian Tolson, Regional Manager, North America, OW Bunker said:  “Panama’s marine fuel market is undergoing a period of change, driven by the widening of the Canal which will exert a shift in regional trade routes and impact fuel demands across the Americas.  As these dynamics continue to evolve, OW Bunker is committed to helping ship owners and operators plan their fuel sourcing throughout the Americas, including Panama. Boosting our physical infrastructure by time chartering another barge, further enhances our delivery capacity and underlines our commitment to providing customers with flexible and efficient solutions in this pivotal location. Furthermore, by co-ordinating physical distribution for customers through our network spanning the south and west coasts of North America, Panama and wider Latin America, OW Bunker is well positioned to work with customers in maximising their operational efficiencies going forward.”
