Jumbo Maritime on Wednesday (26 October) announced its heavy lift vessel (HVL) Jumbo Jubilee has completed a voyage sailing to and around the USA powered ‘mostly’ on biofuels from GoodFuels.
The vessel, which was loaded with three Liebherr cranes onboard, bunkered the biofuels at the Port of Rotterdam.
“Sailing on biofuels in US ECAs (emission control areas) means fewer bunker calls on that side of the Atlantic saving on time and costs, a win-win for the Jumbo-SAL-Alliance team and our clients,” the firm said in a social media post.
It said GoodFuels’ sustainable biofuels are virtually free of sulphur oxides and deliver 80-90% well-to-exhaust CO2-reduction versus fossil fuel equivalents.
“The two cranes on deck, carefully loaded and discharged in dual lift, have now been delivered to Boston and Port Hueneme in the USA, and the third dismantled crane hidden below deck shipped to Rio Haina, Dominican Republic. All three cranes weighed approximately 400 tonnes.”
