The partnership paves the way for a fossil fuel to renewable energy transition in the offshore support sector, by removing infrastructure for fossil fuel production, while at the same time accelerating the energy transition during that process.
Following GoodFuels’ completion of two successful deliveries of sustainable ‘drop in’ Bio-Fuel Oil in the shipping sector, this offshore project, alongside Netherlands-based Jumbo, represents an opportunity for sustainable marine fuel, and GoodFuels’ Bio-Fuel Oil.
The project will see sustainable ‘drop-in’ Bio-Fuel Oil delivered to Jumbo’s offshore vessel, Fairplayer, ahead of its departure to the North Sea. The Bio-Fuel Oil will be supplied by GoodFuels’ logistics partner VARO Energy.
Dirk Kronemeijer, CEO and Founder at GoodFuels, mentioned:
We continue to fulfil our mission as accelerators of the energy transition: by now making strides in offshore market, as we have already achieved in the shipping industry
The Bio-Fuel Oil has been developed by GoodFuels, after undergoing three years of testing with marine engine manufacturers. The second-generation Bio-Fuel Oil is derived from forest residues and waste oil products, expected to deliver 80-90% well-to-propeller CO2 reduction versus fossil equivalents, and contains no sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions, without any requirement for engine modifications.
