Keppel Offshore & Marine’s shipbuilding unit, Keppel Singmarine, delivered its second dual-fuel tug capable of running on LNG to Maju Maritime, a company operationally merged with Keppel Smit Towage.

The tug, named Maju Loyalty is the “second dual-fuel tug built by Keppel O&M,” said Abu Bakar, managing director (gas & specialized vessels) of Keppel O&M.

The delivery of Maju Loyalty follows the completion of South East Asia and Singapore’s first LNG-powered tug, KST Liberty, in May 2018.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore had provided co-funding of up to S$2 million ($1.45 million) for each tug as part of its LNG Bunkering Pilot Programme (LBPP) grant.

The dual-fuel tug is equipped with containerized, type-C ISO-certified LNG tanks on the main deck, as well as an LNG vaporizer.

Refueling of the LNG tanks can be done by truck to ship operations or replacing the empty tanks with replenished ones.

FueLNG, a joint venture between Keppel O&M and Shell, will be providing the LNG bunkering services for Maju Loyalty, while Shell will be supplying the LNG fuel, Keppel said in its statement.
