NYK, FueLNG perform first PCTC LNG bunkering in Singapore
Japanese shipping company NYK and FueLNG, a joint venture between Keppel Offshore & Marine and Shell, have completed the first bunkering to an LNG-fuelled pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) vessel in Singapore, the companies said on March 9.
“This marks a significant step towards achieving our long-term target of net-zero emissions of greenhouse gas (GHG) by 2050 for the NYK Group’s ocean-going businesses, and we are grateful to FueLNG and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore for their collaboration and support in making this possible,” said Yuji Nishijima, executive officer in charge for fuel procurement of NYK.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
NYK’s Jasmine Leader, one of the largest PCTC vessels in the world, successfully completed her LNG bunkering with FueLNG Bellina on March 8.
Tahir Faruqui, chairman of FueLNG, said, “LNG is the lowest carbon fuel currently available at scale today and we will continue to collaborate with our customers to drive the growth of decarbonised LNG bunkering in the region.”
FueLNG Bellina, is Singapore's first LNG bunker vessel.
