Technology company ZeroNorth on Wednesday (14 September)said it is opening an office in Singapore’s Central Business District to further support the needs of its growing customer base in Asia. 

The new office will be headed by ZeroNorth’s VP Sales and General Manager for Asia, Paul Van Vessem, who will work together with a team that is well known in Singapore’s local maritime industry.

Singapore, a global shipping and trading hub connected to 600 ports in over 120 countries, offers a central location in the region with a particularly strong focus on technology and sustainability innovation, making it an obvious choice for ZeroNorth to open its new office, said the firm. 

“The city is also a top container shipping hub, bunkering port, and maritime technology centre, and operates the most technically advanced shipbuilding and ship-repair facilities in Southeast Asia,” it said. 

The move to establish a presence in Singapore comes as a natural next step after several months of rapid expansion for ZeroNorth. 

The company now has more than 170 employees in six countries, serves more than 50 customers from across the maritime sector, and has expanded its offering to six fully-fledged services on its data platform. 

The new Singapore office further cements the organisation’s continued growth strategy and opens its presence across Asia, offering closer connection with the city state’s shipping and technology communities and active decarbonisation initiatives, said the company. 

Soren Meyer, CEO of ZeroNorth, said: “At this critical time in the energy transition, shipping companies are looking for the right partners to accelerate their decarbonisation efforts and advance their sustainability strategy. We are proud to be a purpose-led organisation that is playing a leading role in making global trade green by optimising operations for profit and planet, and we are very excited to bring our mission to the vibrant city of Singapore”.

Paul Van Vessem, VP Sales and General Manager for Asia, ZeroNorth, said: “We are a global venture built on the close business relationships that we develop with our customers. Opening an office in Singapore is a natural extension of our partnership mindset and will enable us to be right next door to our existing customers and within reach of potential customers in the Southeast Asian region. As a world leading hub in shipping, technology, and sustainability, Singapore is a perfect fit for us.

“Digital technologies create value by powering up commercial decision-making and improving competitiveness and transparency to counterparties. We recognise that digital transformation is not always easy, which is why being close to our existing customers and prospects to support them every step of the way is so important to us.”

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.
