    Keppel to build Singapore’s first dual-fuel bunker tanker

    Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Keppel Singmarine, has secured a contract with Mitsui & Co (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd (Mitsui AP) to build Singapore's first dual-fuel bunker tanker, to be owned and operated by Sinanju Tankers Holdings Pte Ltd (Sinanju), based on a finance agreement with Mitsui AP, the company said in its press release.

    The tanker is scheduled for delivery in 2H 2019. As part of the contract, Sinanju and Mitsui AP have an option to order a second similar tanker to be exercised within six months from the effective date of the first contract.

    Sinanju will receive co-funding of up to S$2 million to build the vessel as one of the recipients of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) LNG bunkering pilot programme (LBPP).

    The 7,990 DWT dual-fuel bunker tanker will be the first LNG-fuelled bunkering vessel for Singapore and for Sinanju. Built to the requirements of classification society, Bureau Veritas, the bunker tanker will deliver marine fuels to ocean-going vessels within local port limits.

    Keppel O&M has developed a suite of solutions across the LNG value chain. It recently delivered the world's first converted Floating Liquefaction (FLNG) vessel Hilli Episeyo, and is currently building two dual-fuel harbour tugs for Keppel Smit Towage and Maju Maritime, two dual-fuel LNG carriers for Stolt-Nielsen Gas B.V., and two dual-fuel containerships for Pasha Hawaii.

    In addition, Keppel O&M is an active participant in promoting LNG as a marine fuel. Its joint venture with Shell Eastern Petroleum (Pte) Ltd, FueLNG, is a licensed LNG bunker supplier in Singapore providing safe truck and vessel bunkering solutions.

    The above contract is not expected to have a material impact on the net tangible assets or earnings per share of Keppel Corporation Limited for the current financial year.
