Chevron Tests Hybrid Electric Fueling Barge Chartered in Singapore

Chevron is testing operations with a hybrid electric bunker tanker as it explores expanding the use of the technology. The fueling giant looks at the vessel, the Marine Dynamo, which is on charter from V-Bunkers, as a demonstration and proof of concept. The vessel which is being operated by V-Bunker used to supply Chevron customers with fuels in Singapore.

The vessel was one of two hybrid electric bunker tankers built in China and delivered in 2023 to V-Bunkers. The Marine Dynamo is 8,750 dwt and was built by Zhejiang Shenzhou Sunshine Heavy Industry. It arrived in Singapore last summer.
