Seatrium delivers MOL’s LNG bunkering ship

Seatrium has delivered MOL’s LNG bunkering vessel which will serve Pavilion Energy and TotalEnergies in the Port of Singapore.

The group, previously known as Sembcorp Marine and renamed as Seatrium following its merger with Keppel Offshore & Marine, announced the delivery of the Singapore-flagged vessel, Brassavola.

Seatrium handed over what it says is Singapore’s first membrane LNG bunkering vessel to Indah Singa Maritime, a unit of MOL.

It expects the LNG bunkering ship to start operations in February this year.

Temasek’s unit Pavilion previously said that it expected the vessel to be operational in the first quarter of 2023.

The vessel was launched in April 2022 and MOL, Pavilion, and TotalEnergies named it in October 2022.

Measuring 116.5 meters in length and 22 meters in width, the vessel has a capacity of 12,000-cbm. This ship joins Singapore’s first LNG bunkering vessel, the 7,500-cbm FueLNG Bellina, owned by Seatrium and Shell, and FueLNG’s second vessel, the 18,000-cbm FueLNG Venosa, owned by Korea Line LNG.

Brassavola features two GTT Mark III Flex membrane tanks as well as dual-fuel engines running on LNG or marine diesel oil.

Also, it has reliquefaction technology for more efficient boil-off gas management.

The newbuild will go on charter to Pavilion LNG Bunker I, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pavilion.

Pavilion will use the vessel to provide ship-to-ship LNG bunkering services in the Port of Singapore.

Moreover, under a long-term agreement with Pavilion, TotalEnergies Marine Fuels, a unit of France’s TotalEnergies will also be employing Brassavola to supply LNG bunker to its customers.

Pavilion and TotalEnergies Marine Fuels are among licensed suppliers of LNG bunker fuels in the Port of Singapore.
