Green fuel for a green ship

[ February 8, 2022   //   ]

DP World’s Unifeeder operator has bunkered its first truly sustainable 100% biofuel from Varo Energy in the Port of Rotterdam. 

In September 2021, its Elbsummer was bunkered with biofuel B50 (50% biofuel / 50% MGO). It then underwent a scheduled main engine overhaul, which allowed B100 (100% biofuel) to be trialled.

Biofuel B100 reduces CO2 emissionsby  up to 90% well-to-exhaust and eliminates SOX emissions almost entirely.
