OW Bunker, one of the world’s largest suppliers and traders of marine fuels and lubricants, have launched a physical fuel supply operation from its bunker tankship offshore West Africa, covering Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal and offshore  waters down to the Ivory Coast.

 OW Bunker Canary Islands will supply customers with the full range of fuels and lubricants from its newly launched 8,250dwt double-hulled tanker Wappen von Frankfurt, and the company say that a second vessel is due to be launched before the end of this year.

The launch of the physical supply operation complements the company’s existing trading operation across the region and will provide customers with end-to-end bunker and lubricant supply and related services, including slops disposal. Wappen von Frankfurt, built in 2005, has a pumping capacity of up to 750 MT/HR and in line with OW Bunker’s standard for supply excellence, has been fitted with a Coriolis Flow Meter to provide accuracy in the quantity of fuel supplied. This also provides additional assurance against any measurement inaccuracies caused by swelling during offshore supply.

OW Bunker supplies the full range high quality bunker fuels offshore West Africa, including MGO and IFO ranging from 30 to 380 cst. The company also supplies marine lubricants, including bulk supplies, and provides a fully certified offshore slops-removal service, collecting waste from vessels offshore for transportation to shore in full compliance with MARPOL Annex I regulations.

Jan Christensen, Vice President – Physical Supply, OW Bunker, commented: “We know what our customers need in this region – fast and accurate supply, high quality products and being able to avoid unnecessary port calls and lengthy waits. With our own vessel and control over the supply chain, we are able to provide our customers with the highest quality fuels and lubricants in the most efficient and cost effective way.”
