TotalEnergies Marine Fuels has moved a step closer to offering LNG bunkering in Singapore with the naming of the LNG bunker tanker Brassavola at Sembcorp Marine.

The 12,000 cu m Brassavola will be the largest LNG bunker tanker to operate in the port of Singapore and is scheduled to be operational in the first quarter of 2023.

The Brassavola is owned by a subsidiary of MOL and will be chartered to Pavilion LNG Bunker I, a subsidiary of Pavilion Energy. Under a long-term agreement with Pavilion Energy, TotalEnergies Marine Fuels will employ the Brassavola to supply LNG bunker to its customers in Singapore port.

Louise Tricoire, Vice President of TotalEnergies Marine Fuels, said: “We are delighted to witness this momentous milestone together with our partners today, and to move another step closer to commencing our LNG bunkering services in Singapore, the world-leading bunker hub and a frontrunner in green shipping.”

TotalEnergies Marine Fuels currently operates two LNG bunker tankers in the ports of Rotterdam and Marseille-Fos. It has carried out 120 LNG bunkering operations since November 2020.

“As a pioneer in the development of LNG bunkering infrastructure, we are proud to have shared our technical knowledge, insights and resources gained from our LNG bunkering milestones and development experiences, to aid the design and construction of the Brassavola,” Tricoire added.

TotalEnergies Marine Fuels is one of three license LNG bunker suppliers in the port of Singapore.
