World’s top bunkering hub prepares for methanol future

Singapore, the world’s top bunkering hub, is getting the infrastructure in place for shipping’s future fuel mix where methanol will play a significant role.

Local firm Consort Bunkers has just contracted China Merchants Jinling Shipyard to build six 6,500 dwt methanol bunkering tankers while compatriot Global Energy Group is set to receive its first 4,000 dwt methanol bunkering vessel from Japan’s Sasaki Shipbuilding in the final quarter of this year. Another bunker supplier, Golden Island Diesel Oil Trading, is readying to order a methanol tanker up to 12,000 dwt in size for delivery in 2026.
