NOW IN PARTNERSHIP WITH EXXONMOBIL
STENA BULK IN YET ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL BIOFUEL TEST
Stena Bulk has recently conducted a test of ExxonMobil's first marine biofuel. The trial was conducted in commercial operation and included evaluation of onboard fuel storage, as well as handling and use of the fuel in both the main and auxiliary engines. The experiment was very successful and demonstrates yet again the potential of marine biofuel as an alternative to conventional fuels.
This spring, Stena Bulk conducted a successful biofuel test in collaboration with GoodFuels Marine. This time, ExxonMobil was the test partner.
“Various non-conventional fuels play a big role in accelerating the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in shipping,” says Erik Hånell, president and CEO of Stena Bulk. “ExxonMobil’s biofuel development is an important step towards the broader use of low-carbon fuels. We are pleased to be involved by testing the fuel in commercial operation. It went very well, the fuel worked completely trouble-free without any modifications to engines or other procedures.”
