International bunkering firm Monjasa on Wednesday (5 July) said it is expecting to operate with a total of three bunker tankers in Singapore during 2023.  

The firm said Monjasa has already deployed one tanker in full service and she is expected to be joined by additionally two tankers later this year. 

“All three tankers are SIRE-vetted and bring experienced crews when it comes to handling ship-to-ship bunkering operations in the Port of Singapore,” it said in a statement. 

Monjasa, also announced further expansion in Asia by commencing the company’s first supply operations in the Port of Singapore.

Monjasa is already a well-established trading partner to the Asian shipping community with three offices located in Singapore, Shanghai and Ho Chi Minh City and supplying 1m tonnes of marine fuels across the Asian region yearly.

Through this new expansion, Monjasa seizes further ownership across the industry value chain by offering end-to-end maritime logistics in the world’s largest and most transparent bunker hub.

Morten Østergaard Jacobsen, Managing Director Asia, said: “Coming from 15 years as a trading company in Singapore, Monjasa is all set to embrace this new opportunity of controlling tonnage as well. We are now taking further ownership across sourcing, shipping and supply of the fuel products to continually evolve our services across the great Singapore anchorage.”

“The Port of Singapore is one of the busiest and most competitive markets in the world, but we are confident that shipowners will benefit from the increased flexibility and maritime quality matching Monjasa’s global standards. The Monjasa fleet already counts 30 vessels deployed around the world, and this is the strong maritime experience we now build on here in Singapore as well.”

Monjasa also said it is determined to become an enabler of future fuels and the new Singapore operations also opens up for supply of biofuels according to local requirements.

The MPA is a globally recognised leader on the regulatory framework and enforcement across

Singapore’s maritime activities, including standardised B24 Marine Biodiesel products. As an International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) holder, Monjasa meets all biofuels supply requirements.

“Monjasa continues to observe the biofuels demand carefully and remains logistically ready to play its role as an enabler in decarbonising the shipping industry,” it said.

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.
