The NYK bulker Frontier Explorer refuelled with a sustainable biofuel blend and very low sulphur fuel oil (VLFSO) during a call at the port of Singapore while enroute from India to Australia last month.
The delivery is the first to a major client since GoodFuels opened its Asia – Pacific office in Singapore, and also the first under a partnership with Itochu.
Jing Xieng JX Han, General Manager, GoodFuels Asia Pacific, said: “It’s important to underline just how significant this first refueling with NYK is for GoodFuels’ presence in Asia. Just a few months after commencing operations in Singapore, and hot on the heels of our recent agreement with ITOCHU, we are proving to the market that we are ready to supply our sustainable biofuels solutions to meet growing demand in the region.”
NYK is an existing customer of GoodFuels in Europe with its first biofuels bunkering in Rotterdam in January 2019. NYK is targeting net-zero emissions by 2050.
