Baseblue and Bunker One collaborate on GHG-reduction initiative with Wagenborg Shipping
Baseblue, a maritime energy solutions provider, has joined forces with Bunker One to spearhead the delivery of GHG-reducing fuel.
This innovative co-processed fuel, with a GHG reduction of 68.9%, is a small but meaningful step towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions in shipping.
The achievement is particularly noteworthy as it was accomplished using conventional MGO molecules by their supplier, underscoring the potential for positive change within the sector. Wagenborg Shipping, a reputable Netherlands-based maritime company, has exhibited praiseworthy environmental stewardship by choosing to collaborate with Baseblue BV. This move aligns with eco-friendly practices, with a focus on ISCC/EU accreditation, emphasizing a commitment to sustainable operations.
Patrick Benink, Sales Manager at Baseblue's Groningen office, expressed,
"This collaboration underlines our commitment to environmental sustainability in the maritime sector. We're taking steps to lead the way towards a greener future for shipping."
"Reducing CO2 is one of our key priorities. In close cooperation with our customers, we are exploring the potential of CO-processed fuels. We believe, on the short term it is one of the easiest ways to reduce our environmental impact and overachieve our CO2 reduction targets" according to Sebastiaan Verstappen, Bunker Procurement Manager from Wagenborg Shipping B.V.
The success of this collaborative endeavor reflects the collective dedication of all stakeholders involved in curbing GHG emissions and transitioning towards cleaner, more sustainable fuel alternatives. However, the groundbreaking nature of this co-processed MGO, necessitates careful consideration and coordination among Wagenborg, Baseblue, Bunker One and the supplier.
The delivery occurred on the 18th of October 2023, signifying the united commitment of all parties to fostering an environmentally responsible shipping industry. Together, Baseblue, Bunker One, and Wagenborg aspire to set a new standard for sustainable fuel delivery, contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, one vessel at a time.
