The time-chartered Tern Ocean and Thun Evolve will now sail on a mixture of 90% liquefied natural gas (LNG) and 10% renewable liquefied biogas (LBG).
The agreement is Gasum's first when the company delivers a blend containing renewable fuel to a maritime customer on a regular basis.
"Maritime transport is an important part of Preem's operations. We are very pleased to be able to introduce renewable liquefied biogas into our fuel mix. This opportunity supports our high-end sustainability requirements," Anna Karin Klinthäll, Manager Trading Operations, Preem, commented.
To this Jacob Granqvist, Sales Director Maritime, Gasum, added, "Gasum is committed to working for a carbon-neutral future and helping our customers to reduce their own carbon footprint by providing cleaner energy. We are happy to support Preem towards greener shipping and particularly their vision of leading the transition towards a sustainable society."
