TotalEnergies Marine Fuels bunkers CMA CGM Containership with Sustainable Marine Biofuel

On 20 September 2022 TotalEnergies Marine Fuels completed the refuelling of a CMA CGM containership in Singapore with sustainable marine biofuel.

The operation marked another milestone in TotalEnergies Marine Fuels’ ambition to become a key biofuel bunker supplier across strategic bunker hubs by 2030.

On 29 July 2022, the 4,294TEU container vessel CMA CGM Montoir was bunkered via ship-to-ship transfer with TotalEnergies-supplied biofuel.

The biofuel is made of VLSFO (Very Low Sulfur Fuel Oil) blended with 24% second-generation, waste-based and ISCC-certified UCOME (Used Cooking Oil Methyl Ester).

Laura Ong, General Manager of Trading and Operations for Asia Pacific, TotalEnergies Marine Fuels, based in Singapore, said:

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with CMA CGM, a global player in sea, land, air and logistics solutions, in their decarbonization journey using marine biofuel. This latest project is further evidence of both companies’ long-term collaboration to explore and develop initiatives that promote the introduction of clean, low-carbon alternative fuels.”

This operation follows successful biofuel bunkering trials that TotalEnergies Marine Fuels performed in Singapore with a COSCO Shipping Lines containership, a vehicle carrier operated by Mitsui OSK Lines Ltd (MOL) and a bulk carrier chartered by NYK Line this year.
