The efficiency of bunkering operations at Zhoushan has improved due to a locally implemented ‘one-stop acceptance’ platform allowing a streamlined process for the approval of bunkering operations, said Hangzhou Customs District P.R. China on 24 February.

This resulted in the declaration of a bonded fuel oil supply business of 2,400 metric tonnes (mt) to Zhoushan Customs (a subsidiary of Hangzhou Customs) by Xiangyu International Trade (Zhejiang) Co., Ltd. being approved in less than five minutes.

Xiangyu International Trade (Zhejiang) Co., Ltd. is the latest enterprise to have obtained a bonded fuel supply qualification for the Zhoushan area of ​​the Zhejiang Pilot Free Trade Zone.

“Through the bonded fuel filling 'one-stop acceptance' platform, we don't have to go to the window with paper materials to handle business,” said Zeng Weiyu of Xiangyu International Trade.

“We can now complete the bonded fuel delivery online through the submission of ship supply, verification and other documents.

Approvals for the release of bunker fuel from bonded terminals under the governance of Zhoushan Customs have been reduced by about eight hours for each request, he noted.

Xu Degang, Chief of the Bonded Supervision Section at Zhoushan Customs, said the organisation has been constantly assisting local bunker suppliers to improve bonded bunker fuel supply operations.

“Since the establishment of the Free Trade Zone, we have successively implemented cross-regional direct supply, oil supply at anchorages outside the port, multiple supply by one ship, and a ‘supply first’ model.

“More than 10 bonded oil regulatory innovation measures, such as digital reporting, […] continuously improve the efficiency of fuel supply, and help the Zhejiang Pilot Free Trade Zone Expand and strengthen the bonded oil supply business.”

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.
