Starting an offshore empirical test

The ship in question is the 13,154 TEU Hyundai Dream. The bio-heavy oil fueled New Panamax boxship will be conducting the empirical test for a certain period of time during the voyage.

The test is part of a collaboration among classification society Korean Register (KR), HMM, the Korea Bio Energy Association and shipbuilders Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), and the Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering.

The project partners aim to commercialize bio-heavy oil as an alternative fuel.

Specifically, the parties involved in the biofuel project are cooperating to establish the quality standards, investigate the commercial feasibility, and develop a viable supply chain solution for bio-heavy oil.
