OW Bunker, supplier and traders of marine fuel, announced that it has launched a new barge in Gothenburg, adding to its physical supply base in Sweden. Vadero Highlander is a double-hulled 1,862-dwt barge, first launched in 2003. It has a pumping capacity of 350 m3/hr, and will carry all grades of quality fuel oil products for customers.

The launch of Vadero Highlander will also see OW Bunker strengthen its strategic relationship with Northern Europe's leading passenger and freight RoRo operator DFDS. OW Bunker provides DFDS with a full service solution that is focused on managing the total cost of ownership of the bunkering process, ensuring that fuel procurement is a central part of DFDS’s overall operational strategy to increase efficiencies within the supply chain.  Fast bunkering is a key focus in short sea shipping where time and efficiency is critical to success.
