Gasum has announced that it has entered into an agreement with Sweden’s largest fuel company Preem to supply their tankers with a new fuel blend consisting of LNG and 10% of renewable liquefied biogas.
According to the statement, this is the first time Gasum has signed an agreement that involves it delivering a blend containing renewable fuel to a maritime customer on a regular basis.
Preem’s vessels to be supplied with the blended fuel are the time-chartered tankers Tern Ocean and Thun Evolve.
