GAC-newGalle, Sri Lanka – 22 May 2014: GAC Bunker Fuels and its local partner in
Sri Lanka, Interocean Energy (IOE), have moved the bunker barge MT ‘Kandy’
to Galle to meet growing demand for bunker supplies at the port on the
southern tip of the island nation.

Thanks to its proximity to international east-west shipping lanes, Galle
is a popular choice for vessels taking on supplies. For more than two
decades, the GAC Group has taken advantage of that strategic location,
with its Ship Supply base at Galle with a fleet of twelve craft serving
ships passing off port limits (OPL). Now, GAC Bunker Fuels is adding the
convenience of bunker deliveries by barge to the GAC package of services
on offer there.

Jointly operated by GAC Bunker Fuels and IOE, the MT ‘Kandy’ 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 OPL.

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

GAC Bunker Fuels offers competitive prices at all Sri Lankan ports with
the support of its carefully vetted business partners. For more
