IIt will be the first of its kind in Singapore.
Sinanju Tankers’ operating arm, Sinanju Logistics Services, inked a two-year time charter agreement with ExxonMobil Asia Pacific (ExxonMobil) to build a new-build bunker tanker five months ahead of commencing operations.
The 7,990 dwt newbuilding will be the first bunker tanker for Singapore and Sinanju, to be powered mainly by liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The deal will commit the vessel to deliver ExxonMobil’s new EMF.5 Engineered Marine Fuels to ocean-going vessels within Singapore port limits from the first quarter of 2020.
The vessel, called “Marine Vicky”, is a 103-m-long, 19-m-wide bunker tanker classed by Bureau Veritas. It is equipped with a 55-m3 LNG tank paired with a fuel gas supply system on deck for engine propulsion.
The vessel will join Sinanju’s 13-vessel bunker fleet in December 2019.
