PORT-AU-PRINCE Feb 9 Fuel tanker shipments to
Port-au-Prince's Varreux terminal have resumed after emergency
repairs on the facility damaged in last month's earthquake, the
terminal operator and a U.S. company that helped with the
repairs said on Tuesday.
Operator WIN group and SEACOR Holdings Inc. (CKH.N) said in
a statement the first shipment of fuel to the restored berth
was completed in early on Sunday and the vessel has departed
from the terminal.
"We are all taking a deep breath now that the fuel supply
to Haiti has been restored," said Youri Mevs, managing partner
of WIN Group. Varreux normally receives and stores more than 70
percent of Haiti's fuel.
