Spain has prohibited the entry of Singapore-flagged tanker Maersk Magellan into Tarragona port due to it transporting oil products originating from a Russian ship, Spain’s Transport Ministry said on Friday (10 February).

In a statement, the ministry said Maersk Magellan was planning to unload the diesel at Tarragona, after receiving the cargo from the Cameroon-flagged Nobel, which until 1 July sailed under a Russian flag.

The ministry added the denied entry was done to comply with EU regulations prohibiting access to any vessel registered under the Russian flag after 16 April 2022 and also to Russian-flagged ships that switched to another flag after 24 February 2022. 

“This was the case of the Nobel ship, from which the cargo originally came from, which flew the Russian flag until it changed to the Cameroon flag on 1 July of last year,” it said. 

The Tarragona Maritime Captaincy learnt that Maersk Magellan had carried out a ship-to-ship transfer from a third ship, Elephant, in the Alboran Sea in the vicinity of El Estrecho. 

During investigations, the certificate of origin for the diesel cargo of Elephant was found, stating it came from the Nobel

“After these verifications, today the prohibition of access to the Port of Tarragona to the ship Maersk Magellan has been agreed for having breached the European regulations (article 12 of EU Regulation number 833/2014) that prohibits deliberate participation in activities whose purpose or effect is to circumvent the prohibitions established by the European Union after the invasion of Ukraine by Russia,” the ministry stated.

This is not the first time that the Spanish Maritime Administration has prohibited the entry into a Spanish port of a ship whose merchandise originally came from a Russian-flagged ship. In April last year, the Barcelona Maritime Authority already denied port access to the Maltese-flagged ship Black Star for transporting cargo from a Russian-flagged ship, after carrying out a STS operation near Malt.

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.
