Bunker One bunkering vessel Amak Swan will soon be delivering biofuels to ships in the Skaw and Gothenburg regions.
This signals marine fuels and lubricants supplier Bunker Holding’s move into bunkering markets for non-fossil-based fuels.
The 3,500-mt capacity Amak Swan has also begun trials to use biofuel in its own engine.
"We are a strong supporter of the move to sustainable energy sources," said Bunker Holding chief commercial officer Christoffer Berg Lassen.
“We realise that there are still many unanswered questions and uncertainties in connection with sustainable marine fuels, but we are confident that biofuel is a significant step in the right direction, as well as a necessary step for us as the world’s largest bunker supplier.”
Bunker One said it will use the new B30 biofuel blend which consists of a second-generation bio feedstock in lowering of Amak Swan’s well-to-wake CO2 emissions discharge by 26%.
The Danish company said the bunkering tanker vessel will use the B30 biofuel blend for a month before the product is made available to the wider shipping industry.
Bunker One said the vessel has already begun trials using the biofuel "ensuring that clients will receive a thoroughly tested quality product and detailed consultancy".
The company said it is currently looking to expand the biofuel offering to its bunkering hubs, internationally and that it is already working with clients to assess specific supply requirements for "sustainable fuels".
