Gulf Petrochem Group marks first-ever bunker supply by barge at Indian port

 

Gulf Petrochem Group, the UAE-based global bunker supplier, has crossed another milestone in its operations with the successful execution of the first-ever bunker supply by barge at the port of Paradip in Odisha, in a joint effort with Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL).

 

It arranged for the supply of 810 MT of bunker fuel IFO 180 CST by barge, which marks a major achievement for the company. Typically, supplies were made to the non-regular bunker port of Paradip only by Road Tanker Wagons (RTW) for small volumes.

 

MT Dolphin, a bunker barge, was introduced to expedite the supply of the 810 MT cargo to the vessel MV COUNTESS I, a major triumph for both Gulf Petrochem and the Port of Paradip.

 

IOCL, the only physical supplier, had recently introduced the duty-free 180 CST for vessels calling at Paradip. But the supplies were made through RTWs at berth. With the introduction of MT Dolphin, bigger future volumes of bunker fuel requirement at the Port can be seamlessly met, said a release.
