The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Tuesday (18 July) said an MPA officer, Mr Darrick Leow, currently First Secretary (Maritime) at the Singapore High Commission in London, has been appointed Chair of the Working Group on the Strategic Plan (WG SP) at 129th session of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Council (C129).

It said the Council is the executive organ of the IMO, which comprises 175 Member States. It is responsible for supervising the work of the IMO and oversees matters such as strategy and planning. 

“Since Singapore’s election as an IMO Council member in 1993, Singapore has played an active role to advance the IMO’s goals of facilitating safe, secure and sustainable shipping,” it said.

Among its contributions to the Council’s work, Singapore had, in May 2023, prepared a draft IMO Strategic Plan for the six-year period from 2024 to 2029. The Strategic Plan will set out the IMO’s vision, overarching principles, strategic directions and performance indicators for the coming six years. The draft was co-sponsored by 26 Council members and was widely supported by other IMO’s Member States.

WG SP was established at C129 to continue developing the draft Strategic Plan, which upon finalisation would be presented for consideration and adoption by the 33rd session of the IMO Assembly.

MPA also congratulated Mr Arsenio Antonio Dominguez Velasco (Republic of Panama) on his election as the tenth Secretary-General of the IMO for a four-year term, commencing 1 January 2024.

The election took place on 18 July 2023 at C129 and the Council’s decision will be forwarded for approval at the 33rd session of the IMO Assembly in late 2023.

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.
