COUNT Energy Trading B.V. is pleased to announce the launch of its first chemical barge.
Continuing on our promise of offering service and convenience to our customers and suppliers, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with Burando Maritime Services to build and operate two chemical barges. Both barges will be equipped with a Stage-V engine, which limits the emissions of harmful substances up to 40% compared to Stage-IV engines.
Jeroen Baaima, CEO of COUNT: “Our barges ‘COUNTESS Maria’ and ‘COUNTESS Sofia’ will allow us to provide more on-demand services. Besides, they will contribute to a significant CO2 reduction of our transportation emissions, as our COUNTESS Barges have the most sustainable engine the market has to offer at the moment.”
