Fuelre4m & Ardmore Shipping Collaborate On Fuel Efficiency Trial


Fuelre4m, a UAE-based international leader in fossil fuel transformation, has announced a three-month efficiency trial with Ardmore Shipping. This collaboration aims to reduce fuel oil consumption and enhance operational efficiency using Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (VLSFO).

Trial Details and Objectives

  • Pilot Vessel: The trial will commence with Ardmore Shipping’s Ardmore Seahawk.
  • Goals:
    • Fuel Consumption Reduction: Demonstrate significant fuel savings and emission reductions with Fuelre4m’s Re4mx Fueloil.
    • VLSFO Effectiveness: Showcase the effectiveness of Re4mx Fueloil in optimizing combustion and meeting global sulfur emission regulations.
    • Measurement and Analysis: Utilize precise measuring equipment to gauge fuel flow into the engine versus power produced, enabling thorough analysis.

Fuelre4m’s Vision and Technology

  • Revolutionizing Fuel Efficiency: Re4mx Fueloil aims to improve existing fossil fuels’ efficiency, making them cleaner, cheaper, and more efficient than current VLSFO and biofuel blends.
  • Environmental and Operational Benefits:
    • Emission Reductions: Achieve a 40-80% reduction in exhaust emissions, including near-zero sulfur emissions.
    • No Retrofit Required: Enhance emissions class without retrofitting or changing engines and fuel types.
    • Improved Fuel Stability: Increase the stability of complex fuel blends, such as VLSFO and biodiesel.
