Port Tanjung Pelepas Bunkering Hub Malaysia

Port of Tanjung Pelepas furthers decarbonisation efforts, The Malaysian Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), a joint venture between APM Terminals (30%) and the MMC Group, has been selected to join the Partnerships for Infrastructure (P4I) initiative, a government-to-government decarbonization scheme between Malaysia and Australia.

The P4I project aims to spearhead Malaysia’s decarbonizing effort in the maritime industry and to foster inclusive growth through sustainable infrastructure in Southeast Asia.

Malaysia has the potential to develop into a regional green fuel bunkering hub with the support of both industry and government, according to a study by the Australian Government’s Partnership for Infrastructure (P4I). The study also found that methanol is the green fuel option receiving the most investment from shipping lines.

The study was undertaken in response to a request from Malaysia’s Transport Ministry (MoT) to better understand zero-carbon bunkering and explore the potential for green refueling sites in Malaysia.

“We hope that the successful implementation of this initiative will become a game changer in transforming the regional maritime industry and further promote opportunities for Malaysia to lead in this area of maritime decarbonization,” said PTP Chief Executive Officer, Marco Neelsen.

“Given the size and strategic location of PTP, it has the potential to play a key role regionally and globally in supporting maritime and trade decarbonization,” commented Executive General Manager Commercial at Port of Melbourne, Shaun Mooney.

Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP) was developed from green field where it was previously known as a traditional fishing village. In less than 20 years since it commenced operations, PTP has achieved remarkable success by becoming one of the world’s busiest container ports, ranked at no 15 amongst top 100 ports in the world.

PTP will continue to leverage its inherent strengths, such as its strategic location, proven track record for operational excellence and continuous embrace of digitalisation and innovation. All this with the goal of enhancing the value proposition offered to PTP’s customers and its stakeholders.
