Singapore seeks to accelerate Methanol as a new bunker fuel

Do you have solutions for the transfer and use of methanol as a new marine bunker fuel? Now you have the opportunity to submit your proposal to make the maritime industry more climate-friendly.

On December 14, 2023, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) released an Expression of Interest (EOI), calling upon interested stakeholders to submit proposals for the supply of methanol as a marine bunker fuel within the Port of Singapore.

This will be an opportunity for Danish companies with innovative solutions to contribute to the green transition for international shipping.

Methanol as green maritime fuel

Having completed the world's first methanol bunkering operation for a Maersk ship in July 2023, Singapore is looking to accelerate maritime green transition with methanol as a bunker fuel.

Being the premier bunkering hub, a resilient supply of methanol will be critical to meet increasing demand from the methanol-powered ships in current orderbooks that are expected to be delivered in the coming years.

About the EOI

The EOI released by MPA aims to gather proposals for the implementation of end-to-end methanol bunkering solutions in Singapore from 2025.

The EOI focuses on 3 critical areas:

  1. Methanol supply sources

  2. Methanol bunkering operation model at commercial scale in Singapore

  3. Alternatives to the physical transfer of methanol molecules to Singapore such as mass balancing

Submission details

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) is open for submissions until 29 February 2024 and encourages Danish companies to be a part of shaping the future of a greener maritime sector. Learn more and submit your proposal here.
