TotalEnergies Marine Fuels general manager of trading and operations for Asia Pacific, Laura Ong said, “We are delighted to continue our partnership with CMA CGM, a global player in sea, land, air and logistics solutions, in their decarbonisation 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.”
A statement said that the operation will signify another landmark in TotalEnergies Marine Fuels’ initiative. This will assist it to become a key biofuel bunker supplier across strategic bunker hubs by 2030.
This operation follows flourishing biofuel bunkering examinations that TotalEnergies Marine Fuels performed in Singapore with a COSCO Shipping Lines container ship which is a vehicle carrier regulated by Mitsui OSK Lines and a bulk carrier contracted by NYK Line this year.
