Norden has marked the first ever B100 biofuel bunkering in Singapore.
The company was commissioned by Japan-based trading company ITOCHU Corporation to conduct the B100 biofuel bunkering, following the trial of a B24/VLSFO blend on Panamax vessel Nord Taurus.
The bunkering was carried out with support from bunker supplier Mitsui & Co. Energy Trading Singapore (METS), a subsidiary of Mitsui & Co.
In 2023, biofuel sales in Singapore reached 520,000 tonnes according to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), representing a material increase on the prior year when volumes were 140,000 tonnes.
“It is a great milestone for DS NORDEN to be able to carry out the first ever B100 bunkering in Singapore, supporting our ambition to decarbonise our customers’ supply chains. The week before, we did the first B100 bunkering on our Capesize NORD STEEL in Rotterdam, further adding to our aspirations to be a frontrunner within the decarbonisation of shipping. Thanks to the owner and supplier for a strong collaboration,” said Henrik Røjel, head of decarbonisation & climate solutions at Norden.
Last year, Norden invested into MASH Makes, a Danish-Indian biofuel scale-up which researches, develops and produces renewable fuels from biomass waste. The two companies have collaborated on the use of biofuels since 2021.
