First dual-fuel sister Aframaxes owned by AET, a unit of the Malaysian shipping giant MISC, have completed their maiden ship-to-ship (STS) LNG bunkering.

The petroleum and chemical tanker owner announced in a press release that Eagle Brasilia and Eagle Bintulu have successfully completed their STS LNG bunkering at the Port of Rotterdam (POR).

The latest in AET's eco-friendly innovation towards a sustainable industry solution that meets IMO's 2050 goal, this is their first call to port in Europe as they make their journey and tour of duty towards the Atlantic Basin.

Commenting on this milestone occasion, Ron Wood, Global Director, Mid-Size Tankers Crude Shipping, AET, said: "This first European port call for Eagle Brasilia and Eagle Bintulu, coupled with the vessel's exciting first LNG bunkering, is a momentous success for AET in driving LNG as a cleaner burning and viable fuel for the shipping industry and in turn, spurring other shipping companies to work towards achieving IMO's minimum 2050 emissions reduction target."

Each vessel was loaded with 1,040 cubic metres of LNG, filling about 60% of the receiving vessel's total capacity, allowing them a considerable trade mileage of approximately 3,600 nautical miles running on LNG fuel.

Currently, LNG is considered a cheaper and eco-friendlier alternative than low sulphur oil and scrubber over long term, to meet the IMO 2020 regulations that require the reduction of Sulphur Oxide (SOx) emissions from 1.5% to 0.5%.
