UECC to test biofuel oil

Short-sea ro-ro shipping line UECC will trial the use of GoodFuels’ biofuel oil on its vessel Autosky.

The three-month trial will test 3,000 tonnes of sustainable biofuel on the 140 m-long ship. Bunkering will take place at the port of Rotterdam and the fuel will be tested on Autosky’s route between Zeebrugge, Belgium and Santander, Spain.

UECC said that it expects a reduction of more than 6,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions over the lifecycle of the fuel.

Daniel Gent, energy and sustainability manager at UECC, said: “At UECC, we pride ourselves on supporting sustainable solutions to the issues that our planet faces. We are excited to play a leading role in accelerating sustainable biofuel uptake for the ro-ro segment. This agreement demonstrates our commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of our existing tonnage and further complements the emissions reductions on our existing LNG fleet, as well as our LNG battery hybrid newbuilds.”
