Singapore players successfully perform LNG bunkering of “PSA Aspen”
Singapore-based harbour and terminal towage operator PSA Marine on Saturday (10 August) said it has successfully executed a truck-to-ship transfer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the company’s first LNG dual fuel tug PSA Aspen with several partners on 27 June 2019.
The parties involved in the LNG bunkering operation were Pavilion Gas, Leedon NOX, PaxOcean Shipyard and Jurong Port Group, it said.
“The addition of PSA Aspen and the envisaged delivery of a second LNG dual fuel tug to our existing fleet of tugs demonstrates PSA Marine’s commitment towards a green and sustainable future,” stated PSA Marine.
“We would like to express our appreciation to our partners, Fleet Engineering team, Fleet Operations team and pioneer crew of PSA Aspen who have worked tirelessly to make the LNG transfer procedure a success!”
PSA Marine in July received delivery of the PSA Aspen. The 28-metre long, 50-tonne bollard pull harbour tug was built at the PaxOcean Shipyard and uses design and technology provided by Wartsila.
It operates on two Wartsila 20DF dual-fuel engines running primarily on LNG fuel supported by a LNGPac fuel storage and supply system.
PSA Marine received a grant of up to SGD$2 million ($1.48 million) from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) under the LNG Bunkering (Pilot Programme) to build the vessel.
