Cham, 25 January 2018 – VARO Energy today announced a new collaboration between REINPLUS FIWADO Bunker and GoodFuels Marine. This partnership will create more availability for sustainable advanced marine biofuels from GoodFuels Marine at the port of Rotterdam, and to inland shipping routes in the Netherlands through the REINPLUS FIWADO Bunker network. This will lead to more sustainability in European inland shipping.
REINPLUS FIWADO Bunker supplies fuels to inland vessels throughout North West Europe. Thanks to the collaboration with GoodFuels Marine, advanced marine biofuels will be available for inland and coastal vessels, thereby supporting climate and emissions requirements for inland shipping fleet.
Further expansion of biofuels in portfolio
CEO of VARO Energy Roger Brown commented: “The collaboration with GoodFuels creates more choice for our bunkering customers and is a natural extension of our portfolio, which already includes biofuels, such as biodiesel and bio-gasoline for other means of transportation. It responds to an increasing demand for alternative shipping fuels in European markets.”
Savings and improvement
GoodFuels Marine's sustainable biofuels have been specifically developed for shipping. They reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90 per cent and sulphur emissions by 100%, compared with fossil fuels, helping to significantly improve air quality. Biofuels are suitable for every type of marine engine, without requiring any modifications.
Dirk Kronemeijer, CEO of GoodFuels Marine: "We are very pleased that this collaboration will enable us to offer one of the most climate-friendly options for shipping through the largest inland bunker network in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp region. We are confident that we will further accelerate the sustainability of shipping."
