* GAC Bunker Fuels in Sri Lanka relocates bunker barge to southern port to meet demand
Thu, May 22, 2014, 06:59 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 22, Colombo: Marine fuel supplier GAC Bunker Fuels has relocated a bunker barge from Colombo port to Galle to meet the growing demand for bunker supplies at the southern port, the company said in a statement on Thursday.

GAC Bunker Fuels and its local partner in Sri Lanka, Interocean Energy (IOE), have moved the bunker barge MT 'Kandy' to Galle.

Due to the proximity to international east-west shipping lanes, Galle is a popular choice for vessels taking on supplies, the company says.

The barge MT Kandy Jointly operated by GAC Bunker Fuels and IOE, is equipped to store, transport and deliver 770MT of IFO 380cst and 250MT of MGO fuel, along with 50MT of fresh water. Deliveries will be made within the port or at Galle anchorage and off port limits (OPL).

The GAC Group has been operating at Galle for over two decades. The company has its Ship Supply base at Galle with a fleet of twelve craft serving ships passing OPL. Now the company is adding bunker deliveries by barge to the GAC package of services in Sri Lanka.

The barge's relocation from Colombo comes ahead of the launch of GAC Bunker Fuels' new supply service at the nearby southern port of Hambantota, expected in the coming four to six weeks, in direct response to increased volumes, rising demand and expanding marine operations in the region.

GAC Sri Lanka has offices in Colombo, Galle, Hambantota and Trincomalee and service any type of vessel and cargoes.
