Marine biofuel bunkering ship-to-ship a success
It's a first-timer: Total Energies Marine Fuels has completed the refuelling of a CMA CGM containership in Singapore with sustainable marine biofuel. The 4,300 teu “CMA CGM Montoir” was bunkered via ship-to-ship.
The biofuel is made of Vlsfo (very low sulphur fuel oil) blended with 24% second-generation, waste-based and Iscc-certified Ucome (used cooking oil methyl ester).
This last operation follows biofuel bunkering trials that Total Energies Marine Fuels also performed in Singapore with a Cosco Shipping Lines containership, a vehicle carrier operated by MOL, and a bulk carrier chartered by NYK Line this year. (sh)
