Tanger Med, a bunkering port on the Strait of Gibraltar
The bunkering activity has been operational since 2011 in the Port Complex. It consists in supplying ships visiting Tanger Med Port as well as ships passing through the Strait with fuel. This activity has been subcontracted by the concessionaire HTTSA to the company MINERVA BUNKERING, which has barges for this purpose in the Port area.
This activity allows vessels to take advantage of their commercial calls to stock up on hydrocarbons. Currently, more than 1.6 million tons of bunker products are delivered from Tanger Med.
Supply of LPG to the Moroccan market
The hydrocarbon terminal launched in 2017 the unloading activity of gas vessels carrying two main types of hydrocarbons constituting LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), butane, and propane. The aim is to have new Port Capacities to meet the needs of the national LPG market.
In 2020, the terminal processed more than 391,000 tons of LPG for the local market.
