Neste begins deliveries of low-sulphur fuel to Polferries

10 Jan 2017 08:53 GMT

Agreement covers the Nynashamn to Gdansk route in 2017.



Bunker supplier Neste has confirmed an agreement with Polferries to deliver low-sulphur marine fuel to the Polish passenger line for the Nynashamn (Sweden) to Gdansk (Poland) route in 2017.

"Polferries is an important new customer for us. This cooperation is enabled by the fact that our product's distribution services are expanding to Sweden. It's great that a Polish company in the ferry business has taken our premium quality, low-sulphur product into use," Panu Kopra, Executive Vice President of Neste Oil Retail, said in a statement.

Nynashamn lies approximately 60 kilometres south of Stockholm. In November, Neste confirmed that it would begin supplying low-sulphur bunker fuel in Sweden from its Sodertalje terminal - located around 53 kilometres north of Nynashamn and approximately 30 kilometres southwest of Stockholm - on 1st January 2017. At the time, Neste said the new supply operation would primarily serve the Stockholm area, but also distribute low-sulphur bunker fuel to other locations on the east coast of Sweden.

"Environmental friendliness and compliance with international regulations are of utmost importance to us. We chose Neste because of the high-quality and low-sulfur products it offers, and we appreciate the company's investment in the safety of the product and its distribution, as well as in the management of the entire value chain," remarked Piotr Redmerski, CEO of Polferries, Poland's largest ferry operator.

According to current regulations, ships operating within the Emission Control Area (ECA) of the Baltic Sea, North Sea and the English Channel are required to burn fuel with a maximum sulphur content of 0.1 percent. Neste is currently offering two products with sulphur levels below 0.1 percent: a DMA-specification marine diesel oil (MDO) named Neste MDO DMB, and an RMB-specification bunker fuel called Neste RMB.

In Sweden, Neste is supplying Neste RMB via tank trucks.

Specifications for Neste RMB have been provided below.

- Based on ISO 8217:2012

- Viscosity, 50C: 8-12 mm2/s

- Storage temperature requirement +40C

- Pour point: Max +30C

- No heavy residual
