On October 26, we carried out a biofuel bunkering to Dalaro Shipping's vessel Oslo Wave 3, a cargo vessel of 17,485 DWT.
Founded in 1981 in Stockholm, Sweden, Dalaro Shipping AB is a top logistics choice for Swedish and Finnish forest industries, specializing in sawn timber transport to Northern Africa.
The bunkered B25 fuel is composed of 25 percent RME and 75 percent Marine Gasoil. We recognize the growing significance of sustainability within the shipping industry, particularly considering tightening emission regulations. Providing a wide variety of alternative fuels is therefore a significant aspect for us and our customers.
"Dalaro is, together with our head owner Oslo Bulk, very focused on reducing our GHG emissions. The usage of biofuel and other types of alternatives to conventional bunker fuels heralds a crucial step toward a sustainable maritime future where vessels can navigate with a much lower carbon footprint. Conducting this Biofuel trial is one of several important steps Dalaro is taking to prepare our vessels for the future," says Nils Östman, Head of Operations at Dalaro Shipping.
"As sustainability concerns gain momentum within the shipping sector and emissions regulations become more stringent, the necessity of diversifying fuel alternatives beyond traditional selections takes on added significance. Consequently, we anticipate a steady growth in the biofuels market," says Jenny Eriksson, Bunker Trader at Stena Oil.
Biofuel is just one aspect of our diverse alternative fuel solutions, as we aim to provide our customers with a comprehensive range to meet both their fuel and sustainability needs.
