OW Bunker Strengthen W Africa Ops with New Builds

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

OW Bunker announced that it plans to bring two new build vessels on line to further strengthen its operations in West Africa.  Both vessels will have mass flow meters installed, the latest and most sophisticated technology that enables the quick and accurate method of measuring the amount of fuel oil that is transferred during the bunkering process.
 
OW Bunker was one of the first suppliers to seize the opportunities of the growing market, and is looking to consolidate its leadership position within the region.  Current supplies in the region will be supported by OW Bunker’s global network, with limited availability until the new build vessels are brought into service.
 
OW Bunker saw a significant increase in volumes in the region following the escalation of piracy incidents in the Gulf of Aden and off the Horn of Africa, with many ship operators taking the decision to re-route vessels secure reliable and safe bunkering alternatives.
