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.
