The former Captain of Singapore-registered Eng Hup Vigil was sentenced to 28 weeks in jail at the State Courts of Singapore on Tuesday (29 November) due to a series of offences committed in 2016, according to Today.

Hanny Cornelesz was employed by Eng Hup Shipping as a Master onboard the tugboat when he and four other crew members started selling a portion of marine gas oil (MGO) bunker fuel from the vessel to the black market.

They were conducting a transfer of siphoned MGO to another vessel on 1 February 2016 when another employee of Eng Hup Shipping spotted the illegal operation.

Afraid of being caught, Cornelesz and his crew piloted Eng Hup Vigil to Batam, Indonesia where he eventually fled to Jakarta; his accomplices are still at large.

He returned to Singapore on 2 February 2016 to assist the company in retrieving the ship and was later jailed for six weeks on 29 September 2016.

Six years later, Cornelesz returned to Singapore on 26 September 2022 to attend a shipping course and found himself being arrest; this time being over offences related to criminal breach of trust and illegal departure from Singapore.

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.
