Danish marine fuel supplier Bunker One has completed a B30 fuel supply to Germany’s TUI Cruises at the port of Aarhus in Denmark.

Bunker One has conducted the first bunkering of B30-blend fuel for TUI Cruises Mein Schiff 4, calling Port of Aarhus as part of a voyage beyond the Barents Sea to the islands of Svalbard.

Tested fuel on Mein Shiff 4

Bunker One said supply of the B30 blend — which comprised 70pc marine gasoil with 0.1pc sulphur (MGO),successful and 30pc advanced fatty acid methyl ester (Fame) — to TUI was completed in the middle of June. TUI cruises subsequently tested the fuel on its Mein Shiff 4, and the operation was successful.

Bunker one refused to comment

Bunker One refused to comment on whether any further supply will be conducted on a contract basis with TUI cruises, but did say it is able to supply bio-blended bunker fuels and hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) in Danish, Swedish and German ports.

Argus assessed the price of B30 marine biodiesel at $725.54/t in July, up by nearly $25/t from the average in June.
