LEADING international marine lubricant supplier TOTAL Lubmarine has further strengthened its global service offering to the shipping industry with the introduction of three brand-new barges at the port of Singapore.
The 700 dwt double-hulled barges – Marine Champion, Marine Prospect, and Marine Talent – have a cargo load capacity of 860 cu m for bulk and packaged lubricants, and are fitted with state-of-the-art firefighting equipment. They will be operated by Lubmarine’s logistics partner, Singapore-based Ocean Tankers, which operates a diverse fleet of support vessels and is a specialist in ship-to-ship transfers.
Serge DAL FARRA, Head of Marketing at Lubmarine, says, “The investment made in these barges confirms Lubmarine’s commitment to the very highest standards of safety and excellence in the best interests of its customers. It also underlines our determination to provide the highest level of responsive service, and access to our innovative range of products, in one of the world’s busiest and most strategically located ports.
“We are delighted to be working in Singapore with Ocean Tankers, which shares our commitment to safety and excellence. Lubmarine has a very strong presence in Asia through its network of supply and service centres. This will become even stronger following the introduction of the new barges in Singapore.”
