Bunker One to supply Danish Molslinjen with HVO biodiesel
Bunker One will supply Molslinjen’s ferry link Fanølinjen, with fossil-free HVO biodiesel. The new partnership will entail a reduction of CO2 emissions by up to 90 percent.
Earlier this year the product was tested in the engines onboard M/F Fenja and M/F Menja, the two ferries operating the route between Esbjerg the Danish mainland and the island of Fanø. After a successful test period, Bunker One and Molslinjen have entered into a long-term supply agreement. In line with Bunker Holding’s strong ambition to support shipping companies in their transition to more sustainable energy sources, Bunker One has in recent years intensified its efforts in delivering cleaner fuels. As the demand for sustainable fuels is increasing, Bunker One is looking to expand the offering to its physical operations around the world.
In recent years, Bunker One’s clients have demonstrated an increased interest in alternative and new fuels, and Molslinjen is no exception. “It is our aim to operate ferries that no longer emit CO2 on their routes. Even though it’s just the beginning, we are happy to now have reached the phase of testing HVO biodiesel for one of our ferry routes, as it’s a step in the right direction towards our ambition of transitioning to sustainable fuels,” says Carsten Jensen, CEO of Molslinjen. The strategy laid out by Bunker One will safeguard that it continues to focus on providing expert advice and proof of concept to its clients and business partners.
Peter Zachariassen, CEO of Bunker One elaborates: We are very excited to have entered this agreement with Molslinjen and support their ambitions to operate a fossil free ferry route. It requires product knowledge and insight in sustainability to offer and supply these new products. At Bunker One, we ensure that we have complete control of the quality – and combined with our in-depth knowledge within logistic – this enables us to act as trusted advisors for our clients. Our very skilled team is working relentlessly to always be one step ahead of the curve, as we successfully did with the IMO2020 transition.”
