Danish-based Bunker One is to supply Molslinjen’s ferry link Fanølinjen, with fossil-free HVO biodiesel.
Earlier this year, the product was tested on the ferries’ ‘Fenja’ and ‘Menja’ engines.
The two ferries operate between Esbjerg and the island of Fanø.
After a successful test period, Bunker One and Molslinjen entered into a long-term supply agreement.
As the demand for sustainable fuels is increasing, Bunker One said that it was looking to expand this offering to its physical operations worldwide.
“It is our aim to operate ferries that no longer emit CO2 on their routes. Even though it’s just the beginning, we are happy to now have reached the phase of testing HVO biodiesel for one of our ferry routes, as it’s a step in the right direction towards our ambition of transitioning to sustainable fuels,” said Carsten Jensen, Molslinjen CEO.
Peter Zachariassen, CEO of Bunker One, added: “We are very excited to have entered this agreement with Molslinjen and support their ambitions to operate a fossil free ferry route. It requires product knowledge and insight in sustainability to offer and supply these new products.
“At Bunker One, we ensure that we have complete control of the quality – and combined with our in-depth knowledge within logistic – this enables us to act as trusted advisers for our clients.
“Our very skilled team is working relentlessly to always be one step ahead of the curve, as we successfully did with the IMO2020 transition,” he said.
