Pavilion Gas is to supply liquified natural gas (LNG) bunker fuel to PSA Marine from 2019 for two of its dual-fuel LNG harbour tugs.
The gas-fuelled tugs are expected to start operating in the port in the same year,local news provider the Business Times reports.
The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore has set up a programme to subsidise the cost of building LNG-fuelled vessels.
Of two tugs, PSA Marine is to build one while the newbuild contract for the other is expected to be known next month, according to the report.
Both newbuilds will be supported by the MPA programme which received a boost in funds last week.
