周二(4 月 18 日),新加坡燃油与物流服务提供商Consort Bunkers Pte Ltd从中国山东省的京鲁船业(蓬莱中柏京鲁船业有限公司)接收了“Pearl Khaoyai”轮。

Consort Bunkers创始人杨肃敬(SK Yeo)先生告诉《满航时报》,这艘悬挂新加坡国旗的7,999 载重吨加油船是2020年该公司订购的七艘“K”系列加油船中的第三艘,将被部署于Maersk Oil Trading的海上加油业务。

“我们‘K’系列加油船的最后一艘将升级IMO 2型化学品油轮,以部署在面向未来的加油业务,并涵盖传统船燃类以及绿色替代船燃,如生物燃料和甲醇。”杨先生分享道。

“预计,这艘船将在2024 年第一季度交付;其中,Consort Bunkers 将成为先行运营此新建IMO 2 型油轮的新加坡燃料供应商之一,并于当地提供服务。”

借此机会,杨先生表示,作为Consort Bunkers 船队更迭计划的一部分,Consort Bunkers 也在4月初向招商局金陵船舶(南京)有限公司订购了6艘6,500载重吨的IMO 2型油轮。

这一批6,500 载重吨的新船除了能够提供各种常规船用燃料,也可以提供包含生物燃料和甲醇在内的可持续绿色燃料。

“这六艘船都属于我们的‘L’系列油轮,将于2024年至2025年之间陆续交付。”他指出,并解释,这些最新订购的升级版IMO 2型油轮将能够在即将来临的IMO 2030目标框架下提供加注服务。

“生物燃料和甲醇是当今被预测可能帮助航运业向IMO 2030/2050脱碳目标推进的替代燃料之一,同时,也都属于化学品类,其运输必须依靠配备不锈钢或涂层管道、涂层罐等其他特性的化学品油轮,以确保能够符合相关的安全规定。

“因此,我们推进航运脱碳的理念,也促成了我们决定委托金陵船厂建造新型的加油船;而这也与MPA(新加坡海事及港务管理局)去年发布的《新加坡海事脱碳蓝图》步伐一致。

“另外,我们也注意到,MPA已引入一项有关生物船燃规格的临时国家标准 (WA 2:2022),因此,我们在致力于推出新的IMO 2 型油轮时也考量了这一因素。”

展望未来,杨先生分享道,Consort Bunkers 将把2018 年建竣的“Pearl Mercury ”轮和2019年建竣的“Pearl Majestic”轮分别出售给欧洲和中东买家;这两艘8,000 载重吨的船舶是该公司2016 年向一家中国造船厂订购的七艘“M”系列船的其中姊妹船。

“从 2016 年至今 [2023 年],能够运载常规船燃的新建加油船成本已经上涨了30-40%。”杨先生发表其个人洞见。

“根据我们最新的[‘L’ 系列新造船订单] 信息,与当前的新造传统油轮价格相比,新型IMO 2型油船还得面对额外15-20% 的建造成本溢价。”

2022 年,在MPA的年度船用燃油供应商排行榜上,Consort Bunkers排名第18 位(2021 年的排名为第20 位)。

Singapore-based Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS) on Wednesday (28 February) said it signed two new contract orders in a signing ceremony in Shanghai, one for a series of ammonia dual-fuel bulk carriers with CSSC Beihai Shipbuilding and another for a series of LNG dual-fuel oil tankers with CSSC Guangzhou Shipbuilding International. 

The contracts signed cover four 210,000 dwt ammonia dual-fuel bulk carriers and two 111,000 dwt LNG dual-fuel LR2 oil tankers, expanding our fleet of green vessels on water. 

“These are pivotal for EPS, testament to our continued commitment towards the decarbonisation of shipping,” EPS said in a social media post.

Manifold Times recently reported EPS signing a contract for its first ever wind-assisted propulsion system, partnering with bound4blue to install three 22-metre eSAILs® onboard the Pacific Sentinel

The turnkey ‘suction sail’ technology, which drags air across an aerodynamic surface to generate exceptional propulsive efficiency, will be fitted later this year, helping the 183-metre, 50,000 DWT oil and chemical tanker reduce overall energy consumption by approximately 10%, depending on vessel routing.

Port of Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP), a joint venture between MMC Group and APM Terminals, on Wednesday (28 February) announced a significant milestone with the successful completion of its first Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) bunkering operation. 

The landmark event involved the CMA CGM Monaco, a 14,024 TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) capacity containership operated by French shipping giant, CMA CGM.

Tan Sri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh, Chairman of PTP in a statement remarked this latest milestone demonstrates PTP’s commitment to continuously enhance its competitive advantages in an increasingly competitive global market.

“The successful completion of our first LNG bunkering operation also underscores our unwavering commitment to sustainability and environmental leadership. We are proud to partner with Petronas Trading Corporation Sendirian Berhad (PETCO) and CMA CGM on this initiative and showcase PTP’s capabilities as a leading facilitator of clean and efficient maritime operations.”

“This milestone paves the way for further growth in LNG bunkering at PTP, contributing significantly to the decarbonisation of the maritime industry.”

Commenting on this achievement, Mark Hardiman, Chief Executive Officer of PTP stated this latest milestone further highlights PTP’s position as the largest transshipment hub terminal in Malaysia.

“In preparation for the LNG bunkering operation, PTP worked closely since March 2022 with PETCO and CMA CGM, as well as with various other related government agencies to organise table-top exercises (TTX) and workshops, before carrying out the deployment exercise.”

“The success of the bunkering operation is a result of the seamless collaboration and preparations involving rigorous safety procedures through in-depth operational and risk assessments, modelling, and validation. We thank PETCO, CMA CGM all other involved parties for their joint efforts in operationalising the bunkering capability and we welcome partners to work with us to accelerate maritime decarbonisation,” said Hardiman.

Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) is Malaysia’s largest transshipment hub with the capacity to handle 13 million TEUs annually. The port delivers reliable, efficient, and advanced services to major shipping lines and box operators, providing shippers in Malaysia and abroad with extensive connectivity to the global market. PTP is currently ranked 15th among the world top container ports.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen PCTC order

Roll-on/roll-off (Ro-Ro) shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen on Tuesday (27 February) declared options to build four additional next-generation Shaper Class pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) vessels.

The 9,300 CEU methanol dual fuel vessels can utilise alternative fuel sources, such as methanol, upon delivery. They will also be ammonia-ready and able to be converted as soon as ammonia becomes available in a safe and secure way.

“Together with our customers we are committed to further shaping our industry and accelerating towards net zero. These new vessels are a vital part of that journey,” says Xavier Leroi, EVP & COO Shipping Services.

This latest commitment brings the total number of Shaper Class vessels currently on order with Jinling Shipyard (Jiangsu) to eight. Wallenius Wilhelmsen also retains further options.

The first of the Shaper Class vessels already ordered are expected to be delivered in the second half of 2026. The four additional vessels under the declared options will be delivered between May and November 2027.
