Marine biofuel supplier GoodFuels and independent dry bulk owner Berge Bulk on Tuesday (6 July) announced the successful completion of a recent bunkering of advanced marine biofuel sourced from a 100% sustainable feedstock.
The 181,403 dwt bulk carrier Berge Tsurugi received a delivery of GoodFuels’ sustainable biofuel during its call to the Port of Rotterdam on June 3, 2021.
The development comes at the start of a new partnership between GoodFuels and Berge Bulk that will see the companies explore further opportunities to deploy sustainable marine biofuel.
“We not only believe passionately in shipping’s decarbonisation vision but also in our sustainable biofuels, which are perfectly placed to help owners and operators meet environmental targets and make an immediate impact on reducing their emissions,.” says Isabel Welten, Chief Commercial Officer at GoodFuels.
“Today’s milestone with our partner Berge Bulk proves the viability of biofuels in the global dry bulk fleet. Most importantly, we are showing that solutions already exist to help us kickstart the decarbonisation journey.”
“Reducing our carbon emission is a critical part of Berge Bulk’s Blue Matters environmental strategy. We are committed to developing commercially viable deep-sea, zero emission vessels, powered by zero-emission fuels, in operation by 2030,.” said Atul Trehan, Head of Operations at Berge Bulk.
“Furthermore, we have made the ambitious commitment to become carbon neutral by 2025 at the latest, and we are one of the first bulk carriers to do so.
“This has been a busy year of innovation for Berge Bulk. We are piloting solar power, wind power, and now biofuel.
This milestone refuelling of Berge Tsurugi with sustainable marine biofuel is an important step in our journey toward decarbonisation.
“Moving forward, Berge Bulk is committed to working alongside fuel providers and equipment manufacturers toward a safe, reliable, and cost-competitive clean fuel solution for our customers.”
