Norden trials with biofuel successful

587 nord

Tanker operator Norden and biofuel supplier GoodFuels of Rotterdam announced the successful trial of a CO2-neutral biofuel used as an alternative to low sulphur fossil fuel. In September this year, Norden’s 37,000 dwt product tanker Nord Highlander sailed from Antwerp burning standard fossil fuel. The test documented that second-generation CO2-neutral biofuel supplied by GoodFuels is technically and economically suitable and thereby a realistic alternative to comparable fossil fuel. The test on board the Norden vessel documented that the engine performance is not affected, meaning the full performance envelope can be delivered without restrictions. The initiative is in line with Norden’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.  Norden has reduced CO2 emissions per tonne cargo transported on owned tanker vessels by 25% between 2007 to 2017.
