This is said to be GoodFuels ’ first biofuel delivery in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as its first such supply to a key maritime client since the launch of its Singapore office.
The company refuelled the NYK vessel with biofuel blended with very low sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO) during a port call to Singapore while en route from Australia to India.
The delivery is part of a partnership announced in May between GoodFuels and Itochu. This partnership aims to scale up the use of sustainable marine biofuel in Singapore, Japan and the Asia-Pacific region.
GoodFuels also worked with NYK’s technical and commercial team, as well as with a licenced bunker supplier, to complete the bunkering.
The company first delivered biofuel to an NYK-owned vessel in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in January 2019.
“Just a few months after commencing operations in Singapore, and hot on the heels of our recent agreement with Itochu , we are proving to the market that we are ready to supply our sustainable biofuels solutions to meet growing demand in the region.”
