The delivery of the first of a pair of hybrid-electric bunker tankers that will operate in the port of Singapore has been been confirmed by Vitol’s Singaporean bunker operations company, V-Bunkers.

V-Bunkers placed an order to build two of these cutting-edge vessels with Zhejiang Shenzhou Sunshine Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. in 2021.
