Bunkering and refuelling

Maritime bunkering is controlled by the Harbour Master's Office of the port of Le Havre and the port of Rouen. HAROPA PORT’s partners, certified ISO 9001, perform these tasks during commercial operations, thus reducing the waiting time for each ship in the ports. Services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week all year round.
