The global bunker trading firm teamed with Cepsa for transfer in Algeciras anchorage using B24 blend.
On September 1, 2023, Glander International Bunkering successfully supplied 347MT of B24 FAME / FO blend to MT BITU ATLANTIC, a 50805DWT asphalt tanker for Rubis Group.
The landmark delivery marks the French stock-listed asphalt tanker company’s first-ever biofuel supply, signaling to shareholders its positioning as a frontrunner in the green transition.
The success of the operation was attributed to a collaborative effort between the Dubai and Valencia teams at Glander International Bunkering, together with Spain’s leading bunker and biofuel supplier Cepsa. The product was a second generation advanced biofuel manufactured from waste-based feedstock.
Dimitris Mertikas, Key Account Manager in Dubai, said, “We take immense pride in our client’s achievement and we are pleased to be entrusted with this project. Biofuel is no longer a future fuel; it is here today.”
Continuing, he emphasized, “More companies are expected to follow suit for their first biofuel supply, and we stand ready to support them.”
Glander International Bunkering also provides biofuel in other global ports, with ISCC EU and ISCC Plus certificates in its Valencia, Tønsberg, Geneva, Dubai and Singapore offices.
