TotalEnergies Marine Fuels has completed its first refuelling of a Hapag-Lloyd container vessel in Singapore with used cooking oil methyl ester-based marine biofuel (UCOME).
This inaugural bunker operation marks the start of a term supply agreement between the two companies, which commits TotalEnergies to provide very low sulphur fuel oil blended with 24% second-generation, waste-based and ISCC-certified UCOME to Hapag-Lloyd’s fleet. This B24 biofuel blend will reduce approximately 20% of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions compared with conventional fuel oil.
Hapag-Lloyd’s 15,000 TEU container vessel, Afif, took on 2,000 MT of biofuel on 20 January. The ship-to-ship biofuel transfer was made possible with the services rendered by Jurong Port Universal Terminal (JPUT). JPUT also took on 100% UCOME bio-component into their storage tanks for the first time, which further underscores the significance of this operation.
With a fleet of 252 modern container ships and a total transport capacity of 1.8 million TEU, Hapag-Lloyd is one of the world’s leading liner shipping companies.
JPUT offers 2.33 million cubic metres of petroleum storage capacity and has been providing integrated business solutions.
TotalEnergies Marine Fuels is TotalEnergies’ dedicated business unit in charge of worldwide bunkering activities.
TotalEnergies Marine Fuels has made key commitments to supply marine LNG, bioLNG and biofuels at strategic bunker hubs. As part of its ongoing work in various maritime coalitions and cross-industry R&D initiatives, TotalEnergies Marine Fuels is also helping to shape the production of decarbonised future fuels for shipping.
