MT C Force
The MT C Force has now joined Monjasa’s fleet working from PBUK Terminal at Portland, she will be covering bunker supplies throughout the UK and all Northern France ports. With her large cargo capacity of 10,885 cubic meters and high loading and discharge rates, she is a welcome addition to the Monjasa bunker fleet.
