Singapore: First LNG bunker vessel ‘FueLNG Bellina’ begins commercial operations

25 Feb 2021

Japanese maritime transportation company Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” Line) on Wednesday (24 February) successfully commenced technical management of Singapore’s first liquified natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel FueLNG Bellina, owned by FueLNG Pte Ltd, a joint venture between Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd (Keppel O&M) and Shell Eastern Petroleum (Pte) Ltd.

The vessel has now become commercially operational in Singapore and is ready to supply LNG as marine fuel, said “K” Line.

According to the company, FueLNG Bellina’s debut in Singapore is a remarkable milestone for the maritime industry in their efforts to reduce emissions of greenhouse gas (GHG).

LNG enables vessels to emit less GHG when used as marine fuel compared to conventional heavy fuel oils; and having the FueLNG Bellina provide LNG bunkering on a ship-to-ship basis in Singapore offers more opportunities to various ship operators to choose a greener marine fuel.

“We are proud to be involved in this meaningful event through our technical expertise on ship management of liquefied gas carriers,” said the company in a statement.

“We will promote our effort to reduce GHG emissions in accordance with the “K” LINE Environmental Vision 2050, providing logistics services that are more environmentally friendly and highly efficient.”
