Raízen New Bunkering Operations

In a significant development for Brazil’s maritime industry, Raízen, a prominent integrated energy company in the country, has announced the launch of a new bunkering operation in the key ports of Belém and Vila do Conde, located in North Brazil. This expansion represents a major milestone for Raízen, as it extends its presence into vital hubs within the Amazon region, that serve as pivotal hubs for maritime activities, facilitating trade and commerce both within Brazil and beyond.

Paula Georgopoulos Tinoco, Bunker Sales Coordinator at Raízen, shared about the development, stating, “This marks the full operation of our local physical bunker supply services, featuring the availability of VLSFO 380CST grade fuel. To ensure seamless operations, we have deployed two double-hulled bunker barges ready to serve a diverse array of oceangoing vessels.”

“The significance of this expansion cannot be overstated, as it will provide vital support to both coastal and foreign ships navigating the waters of Brazil. Belém and Vila do Conde ports now stand as key additions to Raízen’s portfolio, joining the ranks of the company’s five bunkering ports where physical bunker supplies are made.”

Raízen’s dedicated bunker staff in Brazil is committed to delivering top-notch services from North to South, encompassing crucial delivery points such as Belém, Vila do Conde, Itaqui, Salvador, Rio de Janeiro, and Rio Grande. Their firm dedication ensures the provision of timely and reliable bunker services along the entire Brazilian coastline.
