The 18,000 cubic meter FueLNG Venosa, also known as Singapore’s second LNG bunker vessel, completed the gassing up and cooling down and bunkering operation of the floating living lab at Seatrium’s Benoi yard, marking a significant milestone in its commissioning, FueLNG said in a social media update on February 26.

“The Seatrium Floating Living Lab, a first of its kind in Singapore, shall play a pivotal role in the trial of many new technologies, paving the way for a more sustainable and innovative power production, Harbercraft electrification and low carbon fueling for vessels,” FueLNG stated.

In October 2023, Southeast Asia’s first floating and stacked energy storage system (ESS) was deployed at Seatrium’s floating living lab to commence operations by the first quarter of 2024.

According to Seatrium, the stacked ESS is a key component of an integrated floating energy solution that could help to overcome Singapore’s land constraints, with a deployment footprint of up to 40% less than land-based ESS.
