Lloyd’s Register wins Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) contract to develop operational procedures and technical standards required to develop LNG bunkering capabilities in the Port of Singapore.

In the contracted work, which has already commenced, Lloyd’s Register will identify technical specifications, LNG bunkering procedures, and development of crew competency for LNG bunkering in the Port of Singapore, to support Singapore in developing its ambitions to develop the capability and infrastructure to supply LNG as a fuel for ships.

Ng Kean Seng, Marine Country Manager for Lloyd’s Register in Singapore, said: "Singapore is supporting efforts to create a clean fuel future for global shipping by developing LNG bunkering operations. We are supporting Singapore in realising that ambition. We have assembled a global team experienced in addressing the requirements and in identifying what needs to be done to really address safety and the operational issues to make safe LNG bunkering possible."

Lloyd’s Register will provide detailed guidance to MPA on what is required to ensure that the technical specifications of hardware are identified; the right operational procedures are established; port safety and emergency planning is provided for; and personnel competence can be developed effectively and put in place.

Lloyd's Regiser explains that it has gained its experience from decades of LNG carrier classification leadership and understanding ship-to-ship (STS) transfer of LNG. STS has been a principal area of development for large scale transfer of gas and is important experience. Most recently, risk leadership undertaken for bunkering operations at the port of Stockholm to support the high-volume bunkering required for the Viking Grace passenger ship project, now successfully in operation carrying 2,800 passengers between Stockholm and Turku, has further added to Lloyd’s Register’s experience and track record.
