OCI Global and X-Press Feeders have announced that OCI Hyfuels will supply X-Press Feeders with green methanol in the Port of Rotterdam from 2024.
ccording to OCI, the partnership aims to connect a vital link in the chain for the decarbonization of shipping, creating an end-to-end green fuels solution. The green methanol will be used to fuel X-Press Feeders’ upcoming dual-fuel vessels servicing European ports.
Earlier this year, OCI also announced its partnership with Unibarge to retrofit the first methanol powered bunker barge which will be deployed at the Port of Rotterdam.
This announcement is yet another milestone in an exciting year for OCI HyFuels and our leadership in the maritime fuels sector. As the world’s largest green methanol producer, we’re excited to be pioneering ways to reduce emissions across the supply chain.
… said Bashir Lebada, CEO of OCI Methanol / OCI HyFuels
This is OCI HyFuels’ second green methanol sale in the marine sector in just under a month following the partnership with Maersk to fuel the world’s first green methanol-powered container vessel.
We continue to look out for future opportunities and partnerships to accelerate decarbonisation in the feeder business, to become the greener feeder carrier of choice.
