Jumbo And GoodFuels Team-up To Take Sustainable Bio-Fuel Oil To The Offshore Support Market
Jumbo, the market leader in global heavy lift shipping and offshore transportation and installation contractor has teamed up with the world’s first commercial, sustainable marine biofuel company GoodFuels to test marine Bio-Fuel Oil on an offshore decommissioning project.
With this project, fossil fuel will be used to renewables energy transition in the offshore support sector. Thus, eliminating infrastructure for fossil fuel production and accelerating the energy transition during that process.
GoodFuels’ has completed two successful deliveries of sustainable ‘drop-in’ Bio-Fuel Oil in the shipping sector – in tandem with Danish bulk carrier NORDEN A/S and French container line CMA-CGM.
With this offshore project, alongside Netherlands-based Jumbo, a new and exciting market opportunity for sustainable marine fuel, and GoodFuels’ ground-breaking sustainable Bio-Fuel Oil has opened up.
This partnership has sent a major signal to the offshore industry – currently transitioning from oil and gas to renewables. With this new initiative sustainable ‘drop-in’ Bio-Fuel Oil will be delivered to Jumbo’s offshore vessel, Fairplayer, ahead of her departure to the North Sea, and will be supplied by GoodFuels’ logistics partner VARO Energy.
Wout Janssens, Director Operations & Engineering at Jumbo:
“Jumbo has been developing pioneering solutions for ocean transportation for more than 50 years with sustainable innovation being one of our top priorities. We are, therefore, keen to work together with GoodFuels on this project. By testing the Bio-Fuel Oil, we are taking a major step towards a sustainably powered fleet.”
Dirk Kronemeijer, CEO and Founder at GoodFuels:
“We are very proud of our cooperation with Jumbo, which is taking a market-leading position in testing GoodFuels’ Bio-Fuel Oil. Together with our new partner, we continue to fulfill our mission as accelerators of the energy transition: by now making strides in the offshore market, as we have already achieved in the shipping industry.”
Extensive research and development
he sustainable Bio-Fuel Oil has been developed by GoodFuels, the leading provider of sustainable marine biofuels to the global commercial shipping fleet, after undergoing three years of intensive testing with marine engine manufacturers. The second-generation Bio-Fuel Oil is completely derived from forest residues and waste oil products, expected to deliver 80-90% well-to-propeller CO2 reduction versus fossil equivalents, and contains no sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions – all without any requirement for engine modifications.
