Vroon slims Petrolmar

Dutch owner Vroon’s new Italian acquisition Petrolmar has sold its bunkering business in Genoa.

The company said the deal included the disposal of three bunker barges to Ciane Spa.

They operate in Genoa, Savona, La Spezia and Marina di Carrara.

All crews and some shore staff have transferred to Ciane.

Vroon said Petrolmar, bought in April, will “now focus solely on its bitumen tanker business.”

It currently has two double-hulled bitumen tankers built in 2009 and 2004.
