Marine fuels supplier Bunker One has expanded its offshore bunkering operations to northern Brazil with the deployment of a bunker tanker to supply very low sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO) and low sulphur marine gasoil (LSMGO).

The bunker tanker MT Thornton will support the offshore bunkering operation some 50 nautical miles from the Itaqui coastline.

“Brazil continues to be of strategic importance to Bunker One. Expanding our presence to northern Brazil is in line with our ambition to strengthen our position in the Americas. This region is of vital importance to Brazilian export of commodities, and our presence there will provide our customers with more flexibility in terms of bunkering options on their voyages,” said Flavio Ribeiro, managing director of Bunker One Brazil.

Bunker One first entered Brazil in 2017 and is present in the port of Rio de Janeiro.

Peter Zachariassen, ceo of Bunker One, commented: “I am very pleased that we can sustain momentum and stay on course with our plans to expand our operational reach. As we continue with our ambitious growth plans, we will, of course, remain dedicated to our business partners and maintain our strong focus on providing our customers with services of the highest quality.”
