Yokohama-based Japan Marine United Corporation, an integration between Universal Shipbuilding and IHIMU, on Tuesday (26 February) received an order for a bunkering vessel able to deliver both liquefied natural gas (LNG) and traditional marine fuel, it said.
The vessel will be built with capacity of 2,500 m3 for LNG and 1,500 m3 for IMO 2020 compatible marine fuel.
“As a first bunkering ship in Asia that can supply the two fuels, the ship can respond to the regulations widely,” it states.
The development is supported by a July 2018 decision by Sumitomo Corporation, Uyeno Transtech and Yokohama-Kawasaki International Port Corporation (YKIP) to introduce LNG bunkering in Tokyo Bay.
Basic specifications of the bunkering vessel are as follows:
Total Length: Approximately 95.57 m
Width: Approximately 15.8 m
Draft: Approximately 4.4 m
Gross tons: Approximately 4,100 tons
LNG loading capacity: 2,500 m3
Compatible oil loading capacity: 1,500 m3
Port Registered: Yokohama Port

‘This biofuel bunker delivery represents a new chapter for Eng Hua as we are now moving with the times towards the era of decarbonisation,’ Mike Sin, Director at Eng Hua, tells bunkering publication Manifold Times.
MPA has also asked Glencore to improve its internal procedures to ensure that prompt action is taken in future when it becomes aware of, or reasonably suspects, any irregularity in fuel quality, it states.
Dynamic Asset Investments Limited and Goldsland Holdings Co Ltd helped Vermont UM Bunkering maintain a “Cash Float” of about SGD 100,000 to facilitate “buyback” bunker transactions at Singapore port.
Senior Cargo Officer gained SGD 48,800 worth of commission from “buyback” bunker transactions and illegally obtained SGD 410,712.257 by cheating Vermont, a Singapore court heard on Thursday (21 July).
Firm hopes to leverage partnership in Greece as a springboard to expand into neighbouring and overseas markets including Europe and China, says Robin Van Elderen, Regional Head Bunkers, Europe, Sing Fuels.
Singapore can help less developed countries in SouthEast Asia through ‘piloting and scaling fuels and technology as well as a leading hub for green finance’, said DNV Group President and CEO Remi Eriksen.
