The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) on Thursday (31 August) announced the appointment of Alexander Prokopakis as its new Executive Director. 

This decision follows a rigorous search process and consideration by the association.

Joining the IBIA team on 1 September with Edmund Hughes, the recently appointed IBIA IMO Representative, Prokopakis will be instrumental in navigating the association through the evolving challenges and opportunities in the marine fuel industry.

Well-regarded within the IBIA community, Prokopakis brings a strong background of active association membership. His recent leadership as the Chair of IBIA’s Bunker License and Mass Flow Meter Working Group and the influential joint IBIA and BIMCO survey were pivotal in ensuring its success. His stewardship has not only driven progress within our association but also fortified IBIA’s stance on Mass Flow Meters (MFMs).

In addition to his IBIA activity, Prokopakis brings a wealth of bunker industry experience as a physical supplier and more recently as an innovator in alternative fuel supply. In his new role, Prokopakis will be collaborating closely with the entire IBIA team – the Global Board, the Regional Boards, and IBIA’s Secretariat.

His focus will be on the internal management of the association, enacting the Global Board’s strategic plans and ensuring alignment across all IBIA’s divisions.  This will pave the way for the continued growth and development of IBIA and servicing the needs of the membership.

Reflecting on this appointment, Timothy Cosulich, Chair of IBIA, said: “Alexander’s depth of experience within bunkering, management and business innovation makes him an ideal choice for this key role at IBIA. With full confidence, we believe that with his addition, our association is poised to scale new heights and uphold its tradition of leadership within the bunker industry.”

Titan completes first STS LNG bunkering operation in Cuxhaven

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan on Thursday (11 July) said it completed the first-ever LNG bunkering operation by ship in the port of Cuxhaven.

Titan’s bunker vessel Optimus successfully delivered LNG to dredger Vox Ariane operated by its long-term client Van Oord. 

“Our ship-to-ship bunkering in Cuxhaven represents a pioneering step in the region's LNG infrastructure development, as the port had previously only seen LNG operations conducted via truck and currently only permits LNG bunkering at one berth,” it said in a social media post. 

“LNG infrastructure development is part of a broader trend, with more ports across Germany adopting LNG operations to support shipping’s clean fuels transition.”

Titan added the improved LNG bunkering capabilities in Cuxhaven, a Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG port, also opened up the pathway to maritime decarbonisation via liquified biomethane (LBM) and then renewable e-methane going forward.

UECC “Auto Achieve” receives first LNG bunker fuel delivery by barge in home country

Norwegian roll-on/roll-off shipping line United European Car Carriers (UECC) on Wednesday (10 July) said it received the first ever supply of LNG by barge to their multi-fuel LNG battery hybrid car carrier Auto Achieve in the Port of Drammen on 4 July.

The firm said this was the first time UECC received LNG by barge to any of their vessels in their home country Norway. 

“We also believe that it was the first time LNG was delivered by barge to any vessel in Drammen, and most likely the entire Oslofjord,” UECC said in a social media post.

The LNG was supplied by the Molgas Energy Holding vessel Pioneer Knutsen, owned by Knutsen Group OAS.

“UECC is very pleased to see the expansion of the LNG barge network in Norway,” it said.
