Pavilion Energy on Thursday (10 September) said it observed several firsts with its partners in the completion of a two-truck truck-to-ship (TTS) LNG bunkering operations for Singapore’s first conventional fuel bunker tanker propelled by liquefied natural gas (LNG).
It was also the first LNG bunker delivery for the receiving vessel, Vitol Marine Vicky and the first delivery completed by a newly-ordered LNG truck with an appointed operator.
The company said the operation, which was completed in full compliance with the safety and safe distancing measures, involved a transfer of 34m3 of LNG from the trucks to the receiving vessel at Jurong Port.
The new LNG-enabled equipment involved in this operation demonstrates the industry’s commitment to the development of LNG as a marine fuel in Singapore, it added.
Following this operation, Pavilion Energy noted it will be commencing regular LNG TTS operations with Marine Vicky under a supply contract with V-Bunkers Tankers, a Vitol subsidiary.
As an LNG bunker supplier in the Port of Singapore, Pavilion Energy continues its momentum in expanding its LNG bunker logistics and supplies, and is committed to supporting its customers’ energy transition journey with LNG as a cleaner marine fuel.
