Atlantic Bulk Carriers
to distribute BlueSky DEF
Aug 2, 2010 2:07 PM
Atlantic Bulk Carriers of Wilmington DE has signed on to become a distributor of Prime Lube’s BlueSky Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) on the Del-Mar-Va peninsula, which includes the eastern shore areas of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia from the Chesapeake Bay to the Atlantic Ocean.
One of the few fuel contractors to hold a Letter of Adequacy from the US Coast Guard to deliver fuel “over the water,” Atlantic Bulk Carriers has the authority to pump fuels and lubricants from the truck to the boat, supplying diesel, heavy marine fuel oils, lubricants, jet fuel, and gasoline to marine vessels and their on-board helicopters and airplanes. The company serves private and commercial vessels, including cruise ships and bulk container vessels, as well as the federal government.
All diesel-powered passenger and commercial vehicles produced after January 1, 2010 are required to incorporate selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology with DEF in order to meet new, lower nitrogen oxide emission standards set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Beginning in 2014, DEF systems will be required on all newly manufactured marine vessels as well. DEF is already mandated for European-based vessels coming into seaports served by Atlantic Bulk Carriers.
