New Barge Speeds Le Havre Bunker Options

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

TOTAL Marine Fuels has increased its bunkering capacity at the port of Le Havre and at the Port 2000 container facilities with the delivery of its new bunkering barge, Cimil. The 4,500 tonne capacity bunker tanker is highly manoeuvrable and can deliver blends and different grades at 500 tph.
Christophe Girardot, General Manager TOTAL Marine Fuels, says, "Cimil is a modern and flexible barge which will complement the bunker delivery capacity we have in Le Havre with our current barge ST Sara. It will improve service to our contract clients, mostly liner and cruise operators, while allowing us to offer a replacement to the  ntifer pipeline service for tankers, which is out of service this year. Delivering our full product range at high speed it gives owners calling at Le Havre a new opportunity, especially for 380 cst fuel. Cimil will also increase our ability to serve spot customers."
The additional delivery capacity provided by Cimil will improve reliability of bunker delivery, increase flexibility in times of availability and ensure that TOTAL customers will always be serviced by a TOTAL barge, so ensuring quality service.
Built in Turkey in 2010 for Swiss company ABC Maritime, Cimil is chartered to TOTAL for three years. It can carry IFO 380, IFO 500, IFO 700 and DML in ten tanks.
TOTAL Marine Fuels currently delivers around 1 million tonnes of fuel per year in Le Havre. The new flexibility provided by Cimil and its ability to operate in the estuary will open up new markets for bulkers and tankers, increasing TOTAL's bunker volumes through the port.
