Glander International Bunkering and CEPSA deliver B100 HVO for seismic survey vessel

April 29, 2024

Global bunker trading firm, Glander International Bunkering coordinated with CEPSA to supply B100 HVO to a seismic survey vessel in Algeciras. Although the seismic research vessel is not subject to EU ETS, the biofuel supply was a pre-emptive part of its decarbonization strategy.

The delivery was also ISCC certified, aligning with Glander International Bunkering’s emphasis on sustainability and traceability standards. In fact, seven offices at Glander International Bunkering have ISCC/EU and ISCC PLUS certifications for biofuel operations.

Glander International Bunkering has witnessed an increase in biofuel demand, especially with the start of EU ETS this year. Some companies see biofuels as a trial run for decarbonization. while others consider biofuels as a drop-in fuel that lowers GHG emissions and eliminates the cost for new ships or modifications.

This biofuel delivery contributes to Glander International Bunkering’s extensive track record of supplies in Spain, and in Europe. The Spanish office has also facilitated LNG supplies across Europe, Asia and the Americas, offering a cleaner alternative for GHG emissions reduction compared to conventional fuel oils.

Drawing on this experience and range of services, the Valencia team actively supports and guides clients through the decarbonization transition. They also provide clients with expert advice on EU ETS and FuelEU Maritime regulations, as well as ways to improve CII (Carbon Intensity Indicator) ratings.
