We are a leading provider of marine transportation services based in Singapore, through the ownership, management, and chartering of tankers, primarily on a time charter basis. Hong Lam Marine’s fleet of tankers is modern and purpose-built.
Our tankers are primarily used by our customers for bunkering within Singapore Port and transporting of chemicals and other products within Asia and to the Middle East.
We have 3 double-hulled Jet Fuel tankers chartered to Chevron, ExxonMobil and Shell to shuttle jet fuel from refineries to Singapore’s Changi Airport.
We are 1 of the only 2 contractors in this business.
We own and operate a fleet of 9 Chemical (IMO II) tankers. They are ocean going tankers with deadweight tonnage of between 9,000 DWT and 11,300 DWT.
Our chemical tankers operate primarily within Asia and from Asia to the Middle East, with destinations such as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea, India, Pakistan and the UAE.
Our lube tankers carry marine lube oil to service the engines of vessels called in the port of Singapore. Included in our fleet are four purpose-built hybrid diesel-electric lube oil tankers which are on time charter to a oil major in Singapore.
Our bunker tankers provide bunkering services to vessels calling in Singapore and perform cross-harbour transfers of marine fuels when needed.
Our valued customers include oil majors, shipping lines and independent bunker suppliers. The petroleum products carried are marine fuel oil up to 500cst, marine diesel oil and marine gas oil.
In 2005, we were the first to operate a double-hulled bunker tanker in South East Asia exceeding 9,000 DWT. In June 2009, we took delivery of a purpose built bunker tanker of 21,999 DWT – an “exceptionally large” bunker tanker according to industry experts and one which was believed to be the world’s largest bunker tanker at the time. The sister-ship was delivered to the same charterer in August 2009. Our fleet currently includes 5 hybrid diesel-electric bunker tankers in the Singapore harbour.
We currently operate 2 Clean Petroleum Product and 2 Dirty Petroleum Product double-hulled tankers.
Our product tankers operate primarily within Asia, with destinations such as Japan and South Korea and from Asia up to the East Coast of India with destinations such as India and Pakistan.
Our customers include Petronas Trading Corporation and Shell.
