Coinciding with the appointment of a new Irish distributor, fuel treatment supplier Aderco has responded to a demand from Irish customers, due to onboard usage and storage restrictions, for smaller containers of its product with the introduction of a new 1-litre bottle.

Pelagic trawler fleets have been using Aderco in 20 litre pails for diesel marine engine maintenance but there has been a call from compact fishing vessels and passenger boats to provide Aderco 2055G in smaller units.

Andrew Deacy of Engine-Solutions/CorribHydServices, Aderco’s new distributor for Ireland, sees this development as the next step in introducing the benefits of fuel treatments into another sector of the shipping industry: “The introduction of the new one litre bottle came as a result of requests from ship operators and fishing fleets who were unable to store our larger 20 litre pails on their ships. We have always been very responsive to our customers and so the one litre bottle will be offered to vessels that will probably only use 2,000 to 5,000 litres of fuel each year.”

With a particular emphasis in the country on the environment, the use of a biodegradable product is of growing interest to the Irish marine industries. “We are delighted to be distributing Aderco’s environmentally friendly fuel treatment products in Ireland and will be supporting increasing calls for fuel treatment products from fishing fleets, marine research ships and cargo vessels,” said Deacy.

Peter Stevenson, Managing Director of Aderco UK, sees this as an excellent partnership to develop the company’s presence in the important Irish market, and considers the smaller container size will increase use of the product in marine and other industries.

Founded in Canada in 1981, Aderco develops, manufactures and distributes specialised fuel treatments, including fuel conditioners and lubricity improvers. Aderco products are 100% vegetal-organic, 100% ashless and 100% metal-free.
