A naming ceremony was held for Atlantic Energy, the newest addition to marine lubricant provider Total Lubmarine’s fleet. The ceremony for the the newly-built vessel took place on November 18 at Posttrans B.V in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Atlantic Energy is a 1,560 dwt, double-hulled barge. She features a 35-meter bunker boom, allowing delivery to the largest container ships in the world calling at Rotterdam port and Europoort. Her 16 cargo tanks will transport Total Lubmarine’s cylinder oils, system oils and trunk piston engine oils.

Furthermore, Atlantic Energy conforms to the latest international safety standards. More specifically, its double-hull build adheres to the International Maritime Organization’s MARPOL Annex I Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Oil. Representatives from Total Lubmarine, barge operator Posttrans B.V., and the ship owner Atlantic Horizon Group attended the naming ceremony.

Norbert Schieren, general manager, Total Lubmarine, commented, “The addition of the Atlantic Energy to the Total Lubmarine operated fleet is testament to our commitment to continually upgrading our services and standards to meet our customers’ needs. Rotterdam Port and Europoort are two of the most important ports for ship operators worldwide, as well as premium ports in our International Ports Directory. There was a real need for this new barge to ensure that our customers are not left without the crucial products necessary to keep ship operations running smoothly.”

The introduction of the Atlantic Energy is a result of the company’s growth and follows on from the recent introduction of new barges in Singapore. Total Lubmarine will continue to expand with further additions to the fleet in strategic locations expected next year.
