Saras operates the first sustainable bunkering hub in the Mediterranean

The first sustainable bunkering hub in the Mediterranean operates in specific dedicated areas of the Sarlux marine terminals and the port of Cagliari.

With the refueling of the ship Jaohar Rima, the first bunkering service that offers the Sardinian port as a strategic fuel refueling hub has been launched. In addition to the full range of traditional fuels and marine diesel, Saras produces, in the Sarlux refinery, the new ecological fuel oil with very low sulphur content (max 0.5% as per the latest IMO 2020 specifications).
An innovative and modern service that marks a revolution in the bunkering sector globally and that will lead to the production of fuels with near-zero emissions.

Refuelling is carried out by a ship, the “M/T Atlantic”, equipped with the latest safety equipment and manned by a specially trained crew, to ensure full respect of the environment throughout the refuelling process.

The service offered by Saras, marketed by subsidiary Saras Trading, is designed to meet the needs of ships arriving in and departing from the ports of Sarroch and Cagliari and to offer additional refuelling options, both at the quay and directly at sea, to the many ships sailing through the Strait of Sicily and the Tyrrhenian Sea.

An avant-garde activity in Italy, around which an important synergy has been created between the business world and institutions.
Through this activity the port of Cagliari will be equipped with a service not available until now.

The Saras Group is proud to continue its path of sustainable growth and to be able to offer a contribution to the industrial and commercial development of Sardinia.
