Finland-based oil refining firm Neste and the German BMT Bunker und Mineralöltransport GmbH have signed a partner agreement concerning distribution and sales of Neste MarineTM 0.5.
This new marine fuel, containing maximum 0.5% sulphur, has been available in Bremerhaven, Germany, since the beginning of November 2019.
BMT is a bunkering services company with a long experience in the sales of marine fuels. The company is well-known especially in the North Sea coast in Germany, which is a key logistics channel for global shipping companies.
Sveta Ukkonen, Head of Marine Fuels and Services at Neste, said that BMT shares the company’s “passion for cleaner shipping” and has the ability to distribute Neste Marine 0.5 to global shipping companies operating via Bremerhaven.
The Neste Marine 0.5 is manufactured with components from Neste’s refinery in Porvoo, Finland.
