       日本航运公司商船三井(Mitsui O.S.K. Lines,简称MOL)签署了一份长期租船合同,在新加坡运营亚洲最大LNG燃料加注船。
       根据与新加坡公司Pavilion Energy子公司Pavilion Gas签署的协议,该艘12000立方米的加注船将由Sembcorp Marine公司建造, Sinanju Tankers公司负责运营管理。
       这艘新船将成为新加坡第二艘LNG燃料加注船,预计于2021年年初交付给Pavilion Gas并投入使用。
       2017年4月,为了加快与LNG等替代燃料有关的业务进展,商船三井设立了燃料业务部。除了新加坡,MOL还于2018年2月与其他地区展开合作,与Total Marine Fuels Global Solutions签署了一份全球最大LNG燃料加注船的长期租船合同,其将在北欧提供服务。在日本,MOL将于2019年4月在大阪湾推出LNG燃料拖轮“Ishin”号。
MOL, Pavilion Gas Sign Long-Term Deal for LNG Bunker Ship
Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has signed a long-term charter contract to operate Asia’s largest LNG bunkering vessel in Singapore.
Under the agreement with Singapore-based Pavilion Gas, a subsidiary of Pavilion Energy, the 12,000 cbm bunkering vessel would be built by Sembcorp Marine and managed by bunker barge company Sinanju Tankers.
The new ship will be the second LNG bunkering vessel in Singapore. It is scheduled to start services after its delivery to Pavilion Gas in early 2021.
The deal was agreed ahead of the upcoming 2020 sulphur cap regulations. Singapore’s Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) is focusing considerable effort on development of an LNG fuel supply infrastructure and implementing policies aimed at creating the world’s largest LNG fuel supply port.
The Japanese government also concluded a Memorandum of Understanding in relation to the cooperation on the development of LNG as a marine fuel with seven other countries, including Singapore. Since then the Japanese government has worked closely with Singapore to promote the use of LNG fuel and develop a supply framework.
In April 2017, with the aim of speeding up progress on business related to alternative bunker fuels such as LNG, MOL established the Bunker Business Division. In other regions besides Singapore, in February 2018, it signed a long-term charter contract for the world’s largest LNG bunker vessel with Total Marine Fuels Global Solutions, which will offer services in northern Europe. In Japan, MOL will launch the LNG-fueled tugboat Ishin in Osaka Bay in April 2019.
