Shift Clean and Vitol in Hybrid Electric Bunkers Partnership

Singapore, Singapore — (SBWIRE) — 04/27/2022 — Renewable energy is a key focus for the energy industry globally and evolution is happening constantly. Now, a new partnership between Shift Clean Energy and Vitol will supply Vitol’s bunker operations company – V-Bunkers – with hybrid bunker tankers. These are the first to be used in Singapore and will help to achieve an improvement in fuel efficiency – as well as a 10% reduction in emissions. The clean energy initiative will have many other advantages too, including reducing fuel and maintenance costs and improving reliability and responsiveness of power management. The partnership has been highlighted for its innovation and the way that it shows that there are opportunities for oil and gas companies to find ways to reduce GHGs right along the supply chain. The clean energy solution from Shift will help to decarbonise V-bunkers fleet operations and lead the way in sustainable solutions that meet commercial objectives too.
