TotalEnergies Marine Fuels completes biofuel bunker op of “CMA CGM MONTOIR” in Singapore

21 Sep 2022

TotalEnergies Marine Fuels on Tuesday (20 September) said it has successfully completed the refuelling of a CMA CGM containership in Singapore with sustainable marine biofuel. 

This operation marks another milestone in TotalEnergies Marine Fuels’ ambition to become a key biofuel bunker supplier across strategic bunker hubs by 2030, said the firm. 

The 4,294 TEU CMA CGM MONTOIR container vessel was bunkered with TotalEnergies-supplied biofuel on 29 July 2022 via ship-to-ship transfer. 

The biofuel is made of VLSFO (Very Low Sulfur Fuel Oil) blended with 24% second-generation, waste-based and ISCC-certified UCOME (Used Cooking Oil Methyl Ester).

Laura Ong, General Manager of Trading and Operations for Asia Pacific, TotalEnergies Marine Fuels, based in Singapore, said: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with CMA CGM, a global player in sea, land, air and logistics solutions, in their decarbonisation journey using marine biofuel.”

“This latest project is further evidence of both companies’ long-term collaboration to explore and develop initiatives that promote the introduction of clean, low-carbon alternative fuels.”

This operation follows successful biofuel bunkering trials that TotalEnergies Marine Fuels performed in Singapore with a COSCO Shipping Lines containership, a vehicle carrier operated by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) and a bulk carrier chartered by NYK Line this year.
