Chevron successfully helps carry out biofuel bunkering operation
The operation was witnessed by Singapore Trade Data Exchange (SGTraDex), a digital infrastructure that facilitates the sharing of data between supply chain ecosystem partners.
The transaction saw the transfer of 992.2MT VLSFO-B24, biofuel in 6, 7 P and S deep tanks from bunkering tanker Marine Rose to containership MOL Endowment.
The boxship was built by South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in 2007. Its overall length (LOA) is 294.12 meters and its width is 32.2 meters. It is currently sailing under the flag of Panama.
SGTraDex facilitated the secure exchange of documents via its data highway including Certificate of Quality, Bunker Delivery Note, Bunkering Sales Invoice and other supporting documents like Mass Flow Meter (MFM) receipts, and International Sustainability and Carbon (ISCC) Certification.
According to the partners, the transaction marks an important milestone towards maritime decarbonisation.
ONE’s environmental sustainability strategy aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 25% from its 2018 baseline by 2030, and by 50% by 2050.
Last February, the shipping firm conducted a biofuel trial on Panamax boxship MOL Experience. The biofuel used in the trial was made from waste oils such as used cooking oil.
