Marine fuel supplier Peninsula on Tuesday (15 August) said its commitment to reducing emissions in shipping goes beyond biofuels and will also look at other alternative bunker fuels such as LNG. 

With biofuels demand expected to increase exponentially due to increased regulation, Peninsula said its extensive commercial network is ideally placed to support customers taking supply of lower carbon products by bringing together supply and demand of new bunker fuels.

Continuing its investment in providing lower carbon solutions, Peninsula will be taking delivery of its newly built LNG bunker vessel Levante LNG which will add physical capacity in the Mediterranean to its already active reselling business in this product.

The development came after the firm fixed its first biofuel deal for Japanese shipping firm Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (“K” Line).

Peninsula’s Bunker Trading team arranged the delivery of 700 metric tonnes (mt) of UCOME-based B24 marine biofuel to the “K” Line oceangoing bulk carrier, M/V Cape Amal, through local physical supplier, Chimbusco Pan Nation (CPN). The successful bunkering operation took place on 11 August in Hong Kong.

Nacho de Miguel, Head of Alternative Fuels and Sustainability at Peninsula, said: “Our focus (is) on key ports, where there is sufficient demand for alternative products such as biofuels and LNG/bioLNG.”

“We have seen increased activity in the Western Mediterranean and ARA regions as well as an increase in very promising prospects through our network in Asia. The “K” Line deal would not have been possible without their trust and the solid relationships held through our regional offices and I would like to thank everyone involved in this deal.” 

Victor Morales, Chief Commercial Officer for Peninsula, said: “I would like to thank “K” Line for placing their trust in Peninsula. Being able to build these relationships with other reputable, blue-chip companies will allow us to support the shipping industry’s decarbonisation journey.”

“We look forward to continuing our activity globally and to build on our reputation as the most reliable company in bunkering. Our vision is to be able to provide our customers with fuelling solutions across the different product categories as they are adopted by the 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.
