Pavilion Energy and Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K Lines (MOL) held a ship naming ceremony for the Brassavola LNG bunker vessel at Sembcorp Marine’s flagship Tuas Boulevard Yard in Singapore, the companies said in a joint statement issued on October 5.
Brassavola measure 116.5 m in length and 22 m in width with a capacity of 12,000 m3. The ship is also the first newbuild LNG bunker vessel for Pavilion and Sembcorp’s first LNG bunker vessel construction project. When launched into operation, it will be the largest LNG bunker vessel in service in the Port of Singapore, the companies said.
The vessel is owned by Indah Singa Maritime, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of MOL, and will be chartered by Pavilion LNG Bunker I, a unit of Pavilion. Brassavola will be employed by Pavilion to supply LNG bunker in the Port of Singapore. The vessel is scheduled to be operational in the first quarter of 2023.
Under a long-term agreement with Pavilion, TotalEnergies Marine Fuels will also be employing Brassavola to supply LNG bunker to its customers. TotalEnergies Marine Fuels is TotalEnergies’ dedicated business unit in charge of its worldwide bunkering activities. Pavilion Energy and TotalEnergies Marine Fuels are among three licensed suppliers of LNG bunker fuels in the Port of Singapore.
