KPI Ocean Connect has supplied a mixture of cooking oil residues and low-sulphur heavy fuel oil as a bunker to a container ship owned by shipping company OOCL.

It was a customized B24 biofuel mixture. The container ship was bunkered with it in Singapore.[ds_preview] The fuel supplied was a blend of Used Cooking Oil Methyl Ester (UCOME) and Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (VLSFO).

KPI Ocean Connect’s local team has reportedly worked closely with OOCL to identify a biofuel that meets the company’s unique requirements and to support the further development of biofuel supply in Singapore by connecting supply and demand for alternative fuels.

KPI Ocean Connect monitored the blending process to ensure that the fuel met the exact specifications and was on site at the time of delivery to verify the good quality of the specially blended product, it said.

Jesper Sørensen, Global Head of New Fuels and Carbon Markets, KPI OceanConnect, commented on the project: “We are proud to have worked so closely with members of the OOCL team to develop a bespoke fuel strategy that meets the company’s sustainability and regulatory objectives.”

“We are delighted that OOCL is able to use green biofuel in its fleet,” said Michael Xu, Director of Trades at OOCL. “The use of biofuel is one of our strategies to drive the transition to decarbonization and achieve the company’s decarbonization goals. We would like to thank our partner KPI Ocean Connect for meeting our requirements with professionalism. OOCL will continue to work closely with our partners and all stakeholders to make further progress in our sustainability roadmap.”
