V-Bunkers, Vitol’s Singapore bunker operations company, has announced that its barges have recently made several deliveries of bio-fuel blended very low sulfur fuel oil (VLSFO).
Mike Muller, Head of Vitol Asia, said: “We are delighted to have demonstrated in multiple deliveries that we have the capability to bring to market these bespoke blended bunker supplies containing renewable energy. We appreciate the support of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) in facilitating these initial, trial deliveries. Bio-fuel bunker blends represent an ‘available-right-now’ decarbonisation option for shipowners and we are committed to making these blends more readily accessible to our shipping customers.”
Quah Ley Hoon, Chief Executive of MPA, added: “We are pleased to facilitate Vitol’s successful delivery of their first bio-fuel blended VLSFO to Singapore.
