Fuel supply service capacity doubles in Ceuta

The recent addition of a second barge to supply fuel for ships anchored in Ceuta will double the capacity regarding these services in the bay. The arrival of the Petrobay ship, belonging to the shipping company Boluda, will complement the work of the Spabunker40 barge, which will allow approximately 50 additional monthly supply operations, according to Ceuta’s Port Authorities. This smaller and more manageable reinforcement will also improve the current bunkering operation for certain types of ships.

The new 66-metre-long barge has a capacity for 2,300 tonnes of fuel and 500 tonnes of diesel. Among other noteworthy characteristics, we should highlight the use of maritime anti-pollution barriers (not required in other ports), incorporated to minimize any type of spill. The Petrobay’s supply activity, carried out by Vilma Oil, S.L. in collaboration with Dúcar, is planned for 6 months and may be extendable.

The addition of this second barge is part of the Port Authority’s commercial policies to improve results and increase traffic in the area, which is directly linked to an increase in bunkering in the Bay of Ceuta. It also reflects the entity's respect for the environment: in Ceuta, anti-pollution barriers are a requirement.

Petrobay: From Santa Cruz de Tenerife to Ceuta

In 2014, the Boluda Group acquired the Petrobay (formerly known as Barnoil) from the Suárez fleet. The ship, number 608 of Astilleros Zamacona at the Pasajes factory, had begun operating a decade earlier.

The barge arrives in Ceuta from the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife to cover the beached Spabunker40. Until now, it has been at the service of CEPSA.

The following are its most important technical characteristics:

  • IMO code: 9301172

  • Length: 66 metres

  • Beam: 15.32 metres

  • Draught: 5.10 metres

  • Power: 2,774 horsepower

  • Speed: 7.5 knots

  • Gross tonnage: 1,704 tonnes

  • Load capacity: 3,000 cubic metres

Bunkering services in Ceuta

The Port of Ceuta is a strategic point for fuel supply in the Strait of Gibraltar. As the leading Bunkering Agency in the area, Salama offers maximum guarantees for its customers during refuelling stops.

In order to do this, it ensures a careful coordination between agencies to avoid unnecessary delays; effective support to the Captain and Chief Engineer throughout the entire service; the collection and shipment of fuel samples to laboratories; and updated information on all key aspects during the layover in the Port or in the Bay of Ceuta.

Among the other services offered are crew change services in Ceuta, spare part and documentation services, medical assistance and provisions for ships (tools, materials, food supplies, publications, etc.).
