TFG Marine Bunker Vessel LNG Refueling

TFG Marine, a frontrunner in global marine fuel supply, has marked a historic achievement with the successful inaugural liquefied natural gas (LNG) refueling of their bunker vessel, the MT Diligence, at Jurong Port, Singapore. This momentous occasion signifies a leap forward in sustainable bunkering operations and underscores the company’s firm commitment to Energy Transition in the bunkering industry.

The deployment of a vessel capable of being powered by LNG, in addition to conventional low sulfur marine fuels, not only demonstrates TFG Marine’s commitment to innovation but also facilitates compliance with the licensing requirements set forth by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

The 34m3 of LNG required to fuel the MT Diligence was efficiently supplied by the Marine division of Pavilion Energy, a prominent Singapore based LNG supplier.

Built and operated for TFG Marine by CBS Ventures Pte Ltd, the MT Diligence, boasting a deadweight tonnage of 5,000, was meticulously designed to adhere to TFG Marine’s technical specifications, prioritizing stringent safety standards. The vessel, which has recently joined TFG Marine’s supply fleet in Singapore, reinforces the company’s position in the bustling bunkering hub of the region.
