FueLNG completes bunkering of first Singapore-built LNG dual-fuel dredger

26 Apr 2022

Singapore-based LNG bunker fuel supplier FueLNG on Monday (25 April) said it has completed bunkering of the Vox Ariane, the first dual-fuel Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger (TSHD) built in Singapore, for Dutch contracting company Van Oord.

The high-specification dredger has a hopper capacity of 10,500 m3 and is able to run on liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a bunker fuel.

“This marks the first dredger bunkered by the FueLNG Bellina and extends our track record in providing safe and reliable ship-to-ship bunkering for a wide range of vessels,” said the firm on a social media post.

FueLNG also carried out the gassing up and cooling down of the Vox Ariane earlier in March and provided LNG for the vessel’s commissioning operations.

Manifold Times recently reported shipbuilder Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd (Keppel O&M) delivering the TSHD to Van Oord with no loss-time incidents.

It is the sixth dredger built by Keppel O&M, and the first to be delivered to Van Oord. Keppel O&M is also currently building two more identical dredgers for Van Oord, named Vox Apolonia and Vox Alexia.
