TFG Marine (“TFG”), the leading international marine fuel joint venture founded by Trafigura, Frontline and Golden Ocean, has today christened the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual-fuelled bunker tanker to join its fleet.  The 5,000 dwt newbuild vessel, the MT Diligence, will join the company’s low sulphur fuel oil and biofuel supply operations in the major bunkering centre of Singapore... 

Built and operated for TFG by CBS Ventures Pte Ltd, the newbuild bunker tanker, the MT Diligence has been designed to TFG’s technical specifications, including stringent safety considerations, so that it can be powered by LNG as well as conventional low sulphur bunker fuels.


“We’re delighted to see this modern, efficient vessel on the water, thanks to our collaboration with CBS Ventures Pte Ltd.  Within a short period of time TFG has grown to be one of the premier suppliers of a range of bunker fuels for vessels calling at the Port of Singapore. Deploying a vessel that can be powered by LNG helps TFG Marine to meet its licence requirement and our commitment to the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore,” said Kenneth Dam, TFG Marine’s Global Head of Bunkering.


Ms Lim Li-Lian, Director of CBS Ventures Pte Ltd said: “We are committed to renew our fleet of vessels using alternative fuels, supporting Singapore’s decarbonisation efforts. The transition to green ships requires additional investment, both in terms of capital and technology. We could not have delivered the MT Diligence without the support of our charterer TFG Marine and our bankers DBS, who have been our trusted partners and collaborators throughout this journey. I would like to thank the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore for their support and guidance, and for sharing their vision of a more sustainable maritime industry.”
