The bulk carrier Frontier Sky, which is owned by NYK and operated by Tata NYK Shipping Pte Ltd, has conducted a trial use of biofuel to transport cargo provided by Tata Steel Limited. This is the third successful trial use of biofuel by an NYK vessel. In this test voyage, the vessel was fuelled with biofuel by Toyota Tsusho Petroleum Pte Ltd at the port of Singapore on November 14 and a test voyage was conducted on a route to the port of Dhamra in India.NYK provided technical support, such as biofuel refuelling arrangements and engine operation planning, and Tata NYK provided operational cooperation for the test voyage. The knowledge gained from this test voyage will be shared among Tata Steel, NYK, and Tata NYK the three companies will continue to collaborate with Tata Steel in an effort toward decarbonization.Overview of Frontier SkyLength Overall: 291.973 metersBreadth: 45.00 metersDesigned Draft: 18.2235 metersGross Tonnage: 93,182 tonsDeadweight Tonnage: 179,288 tonsBuilder: Hyundai Heavy Industries Co LtdGoing forward, the NYK Group will further examine biofuel greater use within the group’s fleet, as we seek to provide maximum solutions for our customers' drive toward decarbonization and further expand our efforts regardless of industry or region.Biofuels are considered to be carbon-neutral because the carbon dioxide that is absorbed by the source of the biomass is equal to the carbon dioxide that is released when the fuel is burned. With increasing demands for reducing greenhouse gases emitted from ships by oceangoing shipping around the world, biofuels are currently attracting attention as an alternative fuel for ships to replace heavy oil.
