Heavy lift shipping and offshore transportation and installation contractor Jumbo said it has partnered with marine biofuel company GoodFuels in a joint venture initiative to test marine biofuel oil on board a DP2 heavy lift crane vessel during an offshore decommissioning project.

The initial project project will see sustainable 'drop-in' Bio-Fuel Oil delivered to Jumbo's offshore vessel Fairplayer ahead of her departure to the North Sea, and will be supplied by GoodFuels' logistics partner VARO Energy.

Wout Janssens, Director Operations & Engineering at Jumbo, said, "By testing the Bio-Fuel Oil, we are taking a major step towards a sustainably powered fleet."

Following three years of intensive testing with marine engine manufacturers, GoodFuels' second-generation Bio-Fuel Oil is completely derived from forest residues and waste oil products, expected to deliver 80-90% well-to-propeller CO2 reduction versus fossil equivalents, and contains no sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions. The Netherlands-based manufacturer said its biofuels can be used directly in any combustion engine without modifications to the tank or infrastructure (drop-in).

GoodFuels' has previously completed two deliveries of sustainable 'drop in' Bio-Fuel Oil in the shipping sector, in tandem with Danish bulk carrier NORDEN A/S and French container line CMA CGM. The offshore project with Jumbo represents a new market opportunity for GoodFuels' marine Bio-Fuel Oil.

Dirk Kronemeijer, CEO and Founder at GoodFuels, said, "Together with our new partner, we continue to fulfill our mission as accelerators of the energy transition: by now making strides in offshore market, as we have already achieved in the shipping industry."
