International Bunker Supplies Pty Ltd is proud to announce the arrival in Gladstone of our brand new double-hulled bunker barge, “LARCOM”. At 3,800 tonne dead weight, she is nearly twice the size of her predecessor.
“LARCOM” arrived in Gladstone 21st August 2013 and is expected to commence service in early October following crew familiarisation and completion of final operational and regulatory requirements.
The new barge will replace the “Larcom 1” which has reliably serviced the port of Gladstone since 1991.
The additional capacity of the barge will help meet the needs of the increasing port activity and to efficiently service the bunker only requirements of vessels at anchorage.
“LARCOM” has 3000 tonnes capacity for HFO and 400 tonnes capacity for Marine Diesel. She will also be able to carry 300 tonne of fresh water.
