Vopak​ Starts Bunkering​ ​Services​ ​at Singapore Terminal

Tank storage company Vopak has introduced a new concurrent bunkering services​ ​at​ ​its​ ​Sebarok​ ​terminal​ ​in​ ​Singapore.

With the service, vessels calling at the company’s Sebarok terminal can receive bunkers from bunker barges while loading or discharging at the terminal, eliminating the shifting time to anchorages for bunkering and making the scheduling of bunker supply more predictable.

Vopak said that the move is in line with Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore’s directive to improve port efficiency. Prior to the service, vessels were required to sail to the anchorage to receive their bunkers.

“This new concurrent bunkering service is a continuation of Vopak’s strategy to help unlock logistical value for our customers, enabling seamless, safe and efficient logistics processes in the entire supply chain,” Tan Soo Koong, Vopak Terminals Singapore’s Managing Director, said.

The bunkering service, introduced through a collaboration with BW Pacific, Sinanju Marine Services, and Unicore Fuel, will be expanded to Vopak’s other terminals in Singapore, according to the company.

Located close to the Eastern anchorage where a large part of the bunkering activity takes place, Vopak’s Sebarok terminal is a strategic hub connecting the supply of bunker fuels and the flow of oil products.
