Unimot Paliwa, a subsidiary of the Unimot Group, and Peninsula have inked a letter of intent to collaborate on supplying marine fuel at the ports of Gdańsk and Gdynia. Peninsula, renowned as the world’s leading independent marine fuel supplier, is extending its global physical supply network to encompass the Polish ports.

The letter of intent calls for collaboration between the companies in the field of maritime fuel deliveries, based on the infrastructure of the Unimot Group’s fuel terminal in Gdańsk, which is currently undergoing reconstruction. The Unimot Group started its bunker fuels business through Unimot Paliwa in March 2024, and it is currently making great efforts to expand its business in this field. Negotiations with Peninsula, a company that specialises in supplying bunker fuels around the world, are one of such initiatives.

“We are pleased to engage with a global bunkering services provider. Collaborating with Peninsula allows us to expedite business and leverage synergies between Unimot Paliwa, specializing in fuel importation into Poland, and a global leader seeking entry into a new market,” said Robert Brzozowski, Commercial Vice President of Unimot S.A. “Upon signing the letter, we will identify specific areas for business launch and aim to report on outcomes soon.”

As negotiations progress, interim solutions to increase bunker fuel operations in Gdańsk are under consideration until the target infrastructure is completed. One proposed solution involves bunkering ships in the Tricity ports area using a specially constructed barge or bunker vessel.

Bunker fuels also called marine fuels are specialized fuels designed for sea-going vessels. With the increasing number of ships calling at Polish ports and transshipments, particularly in Gdańsk and Gdynia, Unimot Group estimates Poland’s bunker fuels market at approximately 1 million tonnes annually. The joint project between Unimot Paliwa and Peninsula is poised to secure a significant share of this market.
