All this was after the introduction of the offshore HFO380 services that were not available previously.

Investments of Red Sea Bunker

By the end of 2020, Red Sea Bunker(RSB) projected to increase its activities tremendously as per its new development plan. The company has plans to acquire a 5000 metric tons bunker vessel and an 80,000 metric tons’ container for storage purposes.

As envisioned by its chairman, such investments, one Mr. Aboubaker Omar Hadi, will enhance the company performance and activities around the region, positioning Red Sea Bunker (RSB) as the ultimate leader.
