The Danish-based global bunker supplier, Monjasa, has announced the further expansion in Asia by commencing the company’s first own supply operations in the Port of Singapore.

The company has three offices located in Singapore, Shanghai and Ho Chi Minh City, and is supplying 1m tonnes of marine fuels across the Asian region yearly.

As part of the new own physical bunkering operations in Singapore, Monjasa reports that it has already deployed one SIRE vetted tanker in full service and she is expected to be joined by additionally two tankers later in 2023.

Morten Østergaard Jacobsen, Managing Director of Monjasa Asia said “Coming from 15 years as a trading company in Singapore, Monjasa is all set to embrace this new opportunity of controlling tonnage as well. We are now taking further ownership across sourcing, shipping and supply of the fuel products to continually evolve our services across the great Singapore anchorage. The Port of Singapore is one of the busiest and most competitive markets in the world, but we are confident that shipowners will benefit from the increased flexibility and maritime quality matching Monjasa’s global standards. The Monjasa fleet already counts 30 vessels deployed around the world, and this is the strong maritime experience we now build on here in Singapore as well.”
