The Supramax bulker Albion Bay was supplied with the sustainable biofuel on August 3rd 2022, with the cooperation of the JFE Steel Corporation. The vessel first completed a loading operation of hot rolled steel coils at JFE Steel Corporation West Japan Works on the 24th of July and started its journey towards the discharging port in Pakistan.

 

The sustainable biofuel was delivered to the vessel in the Port of Singapore on August 3rd. After leaving Singapore, the vessel conducted the trial use of the biofuel and safely arrived at the discharging port on the 16th of August.
