VIDEO: Van Oord, Shell Together in Biofuel Pilot

Van Oord, in cooperation with Shell, is testing the use of biofuel on its fleet with the aim of achieving a 70% emission reduction by 2050 compared with 2008.

The biofuel reduces CO2 emissions by more than 40% compared with conventional marine fuel.

This test fits in with the ambitions of both parties to reduce the CO2 emissions in the maritime industry.

The first pilot will take place during a dredging project in Germany on Van Oord’s trailing suction hopper dredger HAM 316.
