Keppel to Deliver SE Asia's First LNG-powered Tug

Singapore-based Keppel Corp said on Wednesday its offshore rig-building unit is on track to deliver in May what the shipbuilder said will be the first tugboat in southeast Asia that can run on liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The vessel will be one of seven dual-fuel vessels the company is building, and will be able to run on LNG and diesel, a spokesman for Keppel said, without disclosing how much the ship cost to build. A second dual-fuel LNG tug is due to be delivered by June or July, he said.

The introduction of the vessels comes as Singapore's Maritime and Port Authority pushes ahead with an LNG bunkering pilot programme, designed to support the building of LNG-fuelled vessels.

Keppel Singmarine, a specialised shipbuilding arm of Keppel Offshore & Marine, will deliver the 65-tonne 'KST Liberty' to tug service provider Keppel Smit Towage in "a few weeks", the spokesman said.

The dual-fuel tug will have substantially reduced CO2 emissions compared with traditional tugs, Keppel Smit Towage's managing director Romi Kaushal said in a statement.

Royal Dutch Shell will be supplying LNG to the vessel, while FueLNG, a joint venture between Keppel O&M and Shell Eastern Petroleum, will provide the LNG bunkering services.
