GoodFuels' Asia-Pacific branch has performed its first biofuel supply since the launch of its Singapore office.Significance: It comes only a few months after commencing operations in the city-state and is the first delivery to be managed under GoodFuels' partnership agreement with ITOCHU, announced in May.
NYK's bulk carrier, the MV Frontier Explorer, was refuelled with a blend of biofuel and VLSFO during a port call to Singapore on July 5, en route from Australia to India.
Jing Xieng JX Han, GoodFuels' General Manager for the APAC region, highlighted how the milestone NYK delivery had been carried out only a few months after launching commercial operations in Singapore and signing an accord with ITOCHU.
GoodFuels' partnership with ITOCHU, which saw the companies agree to cooperate on providing marine biofuels in all Singaporean waters, will also see them work together to scale up the supply of biofuel in Asia Pacific by identifying potential feedstock.
