Seatrium delivers 12,000 cbm Brassavola for LNG bunker services in Singapore
Brassavola, a 12,000 cubic meter LNG bunker vessel set to be deployed in the Port of Singapore, has been delivered to Indah Singa Maritime, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL).
The bunker vessel was built by Singapore’s Seatrium, previously known as Sembcorp Marine, which announced the delivery via social media on January 29. Launching and naming ceremonies were held in April and October 2022, respectively.
Following delivery, Brassavola will supply LNG bunker services in the Port of Singapore through a partnership with Pavilion Energy and TotalEnergies Marine Fuels.
The vessel is constructed based on a proprietary design by LMG Marin, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Seatrium, and it has a loading and bunkering rate of 2,000 cubic meters per hour.
With 116.5 meters in length and 22 meters in width and a capacity of 12,000 cubic meters, it is said to be the largest LNG bunker vessel for use in service in the Port of Singapore.
The bunkering vessel operates on dual-fuel engines running on LNG or marine diesel oil and measures. It features two GTT Mark III Flex membrane tanks which are said to have lower internal pressure, temperature, and boil-off rate. This translates into greater tank durability, safer fuel transfer operations, and reduced cargo loss through evaporation.
