Asia saw its first ship-to-containership liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation in Singapore on Wednesday, paving the way for refueling ships with the cleaner fuel at the world’s top bunkering hub.

The container ship, CMA CGM Scandola, was fueled with 7,100 cubic metres of LNG from FueLNG Bellina, Singapore’s first LNG bunkering vessel, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said in a joint statement.

“The use of more sustainable fuels is an important element of the decarbonisation strategy. As the shipping industry explores alternative zero-carbon fuels, LNG is a viable transitional fuel,” said Chee Hong Tat, Singapore’s senior minister of state for the Ministry of Transport.
