GP Global has completed the successful delivery of the first IMO 2020 compliant bunker load of low sulphur fuel oil.
The company made its maiden delivery via its 6,000-tonne bunker barge at Fujairah, which will help serve the Port of Fujairah as well as adjoining ports.
The company has three more barges at Fujairah, of which the largest will be dedicated exclusively for LSFO to meet the growing requirements in the region, expected from mid-October.
Anil Keswani, head of bunkering, East of Suez at GP Global, says: 'We are thankful to the authorities of the Port of Fujairah and our partners for their continued trust in us, which has enabled us to undertake the first bunkering of LSFO, just in time as the IMO 2020 takes effect next year.'
