Saras’ first bunkering service in Cagliari
With the supply to the container ship Jaohar Rima, the oil group launched its new service in the Sardinian port
With the supply to the unit Jaohar Rima – a small container ship with a capacity of 500 TEUs (built in 1998 and flying the Sierra Leone flag) – through the barge Atlantic, Saras launched its project to provide ship bunkering services in the port of Cagliari.
As anticipated by Ship2Shore, having obtained all the necessary authorizations and having chartered a tanker for this purpose, the oil group belonging to the Moratti family will be able to supply vessels calling at Cagliari with traditional bunker, marine diesel and fuel oils at 0.5%, compliant with IMO2020 produced in the Sarroch refinery.
With the first supply to Jaohar Rima, Saras launched the service that the Sardinian Sea Port Authority defined as “the cutting-edge result of a constant cooperation between the oil company and the Authority itself, which has been following the project for over a year and a half, promoting its potential during the numerous business events with shipping groups”.
Port Authority President Massimo Deiana voiced his satisfaction: “We have long been waiting for this piece of news, and we have worked for it with determination, regarding bunkering service as essential to make the port more attractive. This additional and necessary improvement increases the Sardinian port system’s competitiveness providing an innovative and modern service and allowing us to keep up the pace with the current international transformation of the bunkering sector thanks to our state-of-the-art products at almost zero emissions”.
Deiana thanked Saras, “for having taken on the challenge to carry out this service, thus contributing to Sardinia’s commercial and sustainable growth”, as well as the Cagliari Coast Guards “for its technical professionalism in regulating such an important and complex service”.
