Unioil Supply Enters a Two-Year Contract with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU)


Unioil Supply is proudly responsible for bunkering of the marine research vessel, Dana, Denmark’s largest marine exploration vessel, owned and operated by DTU Aqua at the Technical University of Denmark.

Competitive prices and a high level of flexibility and expertise are the main reasons why DTU has chosen to enter into a contract with Unioil Supply to deliver marine gas oil to the marine research vessel Dana.

”Typically, we are doing bunkering at the port of Hirtshals, Denmark, where the marine research vessel has its homeport, though the vessel also operates widely in international waters. In the choice of bunker supplier, we focused on competitive prices as well as, in particularly, safety and proper documentation with detailed descriptions of delivery procedures to comply with international law,” Category Manager at DTU, Lars Hansen, explains.

Unioil Supply operates based on a quality management system that complies with the ISO 9001:2015 international standard, which is certified by DNV GL. Additionally, Unioil Supply strives to meet the most stringent environmental requirements to avoid mistakes, accidents and oil spills in connection with bunkering.


A Sturdy Lady

On board the Dana, a wide range of studies are conducted; from arctic, climate and environmental research to marine biology research, geological research and fisheries research.

“DTU Aqua deals with all types of marine areas from oceans to inner Danish waters, coastal and freshwater areas, ecosystems in lakes and streams, as well as aquaculture. The Dana thus reaches the Skagerrak, the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and Danish coastal and freshwater areas, but also conducts studies in arctic and subarctic waters, especially the North Atlantic part around Greenland,” Lars Hansen explains.


A View to a Beneficial Cooperation

Unioil Supply is pleased with the collaboration with DTU Aqua, as it demonstrates the broadness and flexibility of the tasks undertaken and performed as a bunker supplier.

“For our part, the benefits of cooperating with DTU Aqua will be an even better understanding of some of our important business areas, such as the fishing industry, expeditions and the offshore market,” says Carsten Klausen, Managing Director at Unioil Supply.

Unioil Supply provides reliable and flexible deliveries to DTU Aqua via truck with the newest and most suitable equipment. In addition, Unioil Supply offers bunker supplies from tank facilities using ex pipe from the ports of Aarhus, Copenhagen and Skaw with more than 300.000 CUM of storage capacity. Bunkering can also be done by barges in Denmark, the Faroe Islands and in the Barents, Kara and Norwegian Sea.


The company is part of Bunker Holding Group, which owns and operates trading and physical supply operations in 27 countries.
