Credit score: TotalEnergies Marine Fuels
TotalEnergies Marine Fuels just lately accomplished the refueling of a CMA CGM containership in Singapore with sustainable marine biofuel.
“This operation marks one other milestone in TotalEnergies Marine Fuels’ ambition to turn into a key biofuel bunker provider throughout strategic bunker hubs by 2030,” the corporate stated.
On July, 29, 2022, the 4,294 TEU CMA CGM MONTOIR container vessel was bunkered through ship-to-ship switch with TotalEnergies-supplied biofuel. The biofuel is manufactured from VLSFO (Very Low Sulfur Gasoline Oil) blended with 24% second-generation, waste-based, and ISCC-certified UCOME (Used Cooking Oil Methyl Ester).
Laura Ong, Common Supervisor of Buying and selling and Operations for Asia Pacific, TotalEnergies Marine Fuels, based mostly in Singapore, stated: “We’re delighted to proceed our partnership with CMA CGM, a worldwide participant in sea, land, air, and logistics options, of their decarbonization journey utilizing marine biofuel. This newest mission is additional proof of each corporations’ long-term collaboration to discover and develop initiatives that promote the introduction of unpolluted, low-carbon different fuels.”
The operation adopted profitable biofuel bunkering trials that TotalEnergies Marine Fuels carried out in Singapore with a COSCO Delivery Strains containership, a automobile service operated by Mitsui O.S.Ok. Strains, Ltd. (MOL), and a bulk service chartered by NYK Line this 12 months.
TotalEnergies stated that biofuels present a direct and sustainable answer to decarbonize delivery right now, as they are often blended or dropped into present typical fuels with little or no technological developments required on vessels.
