In the southern region of Brazil, only the port of Paraná and Rio Grande provide the bunker, VLSFO 0.5%, highlights the director of Operations of the port authority, Luiz Teixeira da Silva Júnior.
Among those requesting a schedule for refueling at the Port of Paranaguá, some vessels already operate in terminals in Paraná and others come only for bunker.
In the ports of Paraná, Petrobras is the only supplier of fuel for the supply of ships. The company that provides this service to the Brazilian state-owned company is Navemestra, from the Bravante Group.
The supply in Paranaguá is carried out by two barges capable of carrying up to 1,450 tons of fuel. It can be done with the vessels moored (at the pier) or at anchor (in the specific anchorage area). The operation is safe, carried out with containment barriers to avoid any dangerous occurred.
