GoodFuels Marine announced that it will work together with VARO Energy, a subsidiary of Reinplus Fiwado Bunker, to make European inland shipping more sustainable.
As a result, biofuels from GoodFuels Marine are now available at the port of Rotterdam, and will be available along inland shipping routes in the Netherlands through the Reinplus Fiwado Bunker bunker network as well, which supplies fuel to inland vessels throughout North West Europe.
Ben van Kol, Managing Director of Reinplus Fiwado Bunker, mentioned: “Due to climate targets and stricter emission requirements, the demand for alternative shipping fuels is increasing. We are proud to provide our shipping customers with sustainable biofuels through the collaboration between GoodFuels Marine and our parent company VARO Energy. We will ensure that these fuels are available throughout our entire bunker network.”
These fuels aim to save up to 90% CO2 and 100% sulphur compared to fossil fuels, improving the air quality. The biofuels are suitable for every type of marine engine, without requiring any modifications, GoodFuels said.
“We are very pleased that this collaboration will enable us to offer one of the most climate-friendly options for shipping through the largest inland bunker network in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp region. We are confident that this will further accelerate the sustainability of shipping,” Dirk Kronemeijer, CEO of GoodFuels Marine, concluded.
