MOL completes digital fuel delivery in Singapore with TotalEnergies Marine

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has completed a first digital bunker delivery from TotalEnergies Marine Fuels in Singapore, using Bunkerchain’s Touch and Sail eBDN (electronic Bunker Delivery Note) system.

The digital system was used to manage the delivery of fuel to the MOL-owned car carrier Swallow Ace, successfully issuing an eBDN in the process.

Details of the transaction were also transmitted to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) through the digital bunkering platform.

“We are really proud of this achievement which not only improves the efficiency of our bunkering operations but ensures our processes are fit for purpose as the shipping industry transitions to a decarbonised future,” said Louise Tricoire, Vice President of TotalEnergies Marine Fuels.

“This operation keeps us ahead of regulatory requirements in Singapore and demonstrates our commitment to sustainability in the maritime sector and our approach to supporting our customers in their operations.”

TotalEnergies Marine Fuels has been working with Bunkerchain since late 2022 when the two companies were involved in a biofuels bunkering trial directed by the Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonization (GCMD).

As part of that trial, TotalEnergies Marine Fuels partnered with the Jurong Port Universal Terminal (JPUT) and Bunkerchain to issue Electronic Certificates of Quantity (E-CQ) and Electronic Certificates of Quality (E-COQ).
