EPS collaborates with GoodFuels for marine biofuel bunker trial
16 October, 2020
Singaporean-based tonnage provider Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS), has appointed GoodFuels to supply biofuel bunkers for its 2010-built 47,377 deadweight tonne MR tanker M/T Pacific Beryl.
The successful bunkering, which took place in Dutch waters, is in line with EPS’ environmental, social and governance (ESG) policy. The policy calls for the testing and use of various alternative marine fuels to significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions. The planned biofuel testing reinforces EPS’ commitment to using alternative marine fuels to lower emissions.
"Together we are showing the shipping industry, and the world, that sustainable solutions to reduce the environmental impact of operations already exist on the market – and that advanced marine biofuels will play an important part in the future alternative fuel mix," said Bart Hellings, chief operating officer at GoodFuels.
Alternative marine fuels are essential transitional fuels that will pave the way towards industry-wide decarbonisation and the preservation of the environment for future generations.
