WFS boost’s European bunker supply network

(Posted on 28/09/18)

In a move to continue strengthening their logistical operations, World Fuel Services (WFS) has welcomed a new supply vessel to its offering.

The 75m LOA, 3100 DWT product tanker, Whitstar, was deployed in early September 2018 to operate along the east and south coast with the task of servicing UK terminals

Owned by Whitaker Tankers, Whitstar was built in 2004 and is fitted with versatile deep well pumps capable of delivering fuel in volumes of up to 450m3/hr. The vessel also hosts epoxy coated cargo tanks, closed loading and has tank level radars fitted and its hull is also strengthened to enable access to NAABSA berths.

This latest addition to the WFS-operated tanker fleet is large enough to keep storage terminals topped up but small enough to deliver bunkers to vessels. In chartering this vessel, greater control of the supply chain has been achieved with enhanced flexibility and versatility that enables WFS to provide fuel solutions together with operational excellence.
