Singapore-based Pavilion Energy announced the successful completion of LNG delivery to Hapag-Lloyd's container vessel, Brussels Express, in a LinkedIn post on February 26.

"A proud moment for us in this ship-to-container ship LNG bunkering as Brussels Express is the world's first ultra-large container ship to have switched to LNG propulsion,” the company said.

The LNG delivery to Brussels Express closely follows Pavilion Energy's recent accomplishment of the first ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operation by its bunkering vessel, Brassavola, in Singapore waters. 

Brassavola, Singapore's first membrane LNG bunker vessel, was delivered to Pavilion Energy two weeks ago. Equipped with dual-fuel engines and featuring a loading and bunkering rate of up to 2,000m³/hour.

The LNG bunker vessel, chartered by Pavilion Energy to supply LNG bunkers in the Port of Singapore, was built by Seatrium and delivered to the owner, Indah Singa Maritime, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K Lines. The vessel was named by Pavilion Energy and MOL in 2022.
