Under the agreement signed by the partners, ScanOcean will supply the B15-DMA fuel for Lakeway Link’s new roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) service connecting Södertälje, Sweden, and Gdynia, Poland.

According to ScanOcean, this fuel supports the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, as mandated by the EU ETS obligations. Furthermore, it improves the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) and Clean Shipping Index (CSI) scores for vessels. The fuel is also compatible towards the upcoming FuelEU Maritime regulations. 

“Our decision to partner with ScanOcean AB and begin using B15-DMA fuel is a pivotal step in our journey towards reducing our environmental impact. This initiative not only aligns with our sustainability goals but also sets a new standard in the maritime industry for environmental responsibility,” Fredrik Hermansson, CEO of Lakeway Link, commented.

“We are thrilled to partner with Lakeway Link AB as they embark on their new ro-ro service. This collaboration is not just a business milestone but a significant leap forward in our mission to provide sustainable fuel solutions. With our new product offerings, we are dedicated to leading the charge towards a greener maritime industry,” Jonatan Karlström, Managing Director of ScanOcean AB, stated.

The deliveries of B15-DMA will be made in Södertälje, Sweden, to the M/S Lakeway Express, thereby kickstarting the usage of this new fuel. This agreement underscores both companies’ commitment to environmental sustainability that goes beyond compliance, according to the partners.

In August last year, ScanOcean, together with Finnish oil refining and marketing company Neste Oyi unveiled a new lower-emission DMA Gasoil for the shipping sector.
