Director at BLUE


Adrian Tolson is the Director and Lead for BLUE’s Insight practice, and one of the shipping industry’s leading marine energy experts. With 35 years of experience, he has both detailed knowledge and insight into the supply and demand side of marine fuel, and into bunkering infrastructure development.

In 2015, Adrian founded maritime consultancy 20|20 Marine Energy, which was acquired by business, brand and communications consultancy, BLUE, in 2019.  Adrian leads BLUE’s Insight practice, which provides commercial advisory, research and intelligence services across the key areas of transformation within the maritime industry.  This includes the changing marine energy supply chain, digitalisation and the drive for decarbonisation and sustainability.

Adrian has led numerous global business development projects across the marine energy supply chain.  This includes assisting ship owners and suppliers on fuel procurement and supply strategies in a post 2020 world; the development of bunkering infrastructure projects for clean and new fuels; as well as working with the financial and investment community on the opportunities of the future marine energy landscape.

Adrian’s experience spans leadership roles with some of the industry’s largest marine fuel suppliers, including Chemoil Energy, where he was responsible for successfully driving the company through to IPO; and as Vice President and General Manager of OW Bunker where he established its physical supply operation in the USA.
