22 Dec 2021

A Hyundai Merchant Marine operated containership has recently completed a successful biofuel trial during a voyage, a first of such operations for a South Korean shipping firm, reports Aju Business Daily.

The 10-day trial voyage began on 1 December from South Korea’s southern port city of Busan to the Panama Canal where the 13,000-TEU HMM Dream tested a diesel generator powered by biofuel and obtained successful results.

The Korea Bio-energy Association was in charge of supplying and testing the biofuel, while the Hyundai shipbuilding group was responsible for providing a test engine and building test facilities for the product.

Classification society Korean Register (KR) analysed data derived from the test voyage.
