In another successful sustainable biofuel delivery to cruise company Aida Cruises, GoodFuels has supplied the ‘AIDAprima’ with 140t of 100% biofuel, a move that the company says marks another important step in decarbonising the cruise industry.

The Hyperion-class cruise ship was bunkered during a port call in Rotterdam. The vessel was supplied with a 100% biofuel product, without blending with conventional marine fuels, which GoodFuels says proves the viability and technical applicability of sustainable marine biofuel for all types of vessels. The delivery builds on the partnership kicked off between GoodFuels and Aida Cruises in July 2022, when AIDAprima was bunkered with a blend of biofuel and conventional marine fuels. This new step demonstrates Aida Cruises’ continued commitment to investing in low carbon emissions technologies as part of the company’s decarbonisation strategy.

GoodFuels’ sustainable biofuel is derived from feedstocks that are certified as 100% waste or residue, including processed used cooking oil and animal waste fats. It enables a well-to-exhaust CO2 reduction of 80-90% when compared to fossil fuels. Thanks to its ‘drop in’ properties, AIDAprima was bunkered with biofuel without requiring any modifications to the engine or tanks.

Dirk Kronemeijer, CEO GoodFuels, said: “This bio-bunkering with Aida Cruises comes as yet another big step forward on the cruise sector’s decarbonisation pathway. It builds on the collaboration and partnership we are enjoying with Aida Cruises and the wider Carnival group, and once again proves that our sustainable biofuels are an immediate available sustainability solution for a range of segments in the global fleet. The team at GoodFuels is focused on delivering immediate impact, and we are pleased to be able to continue to work with the pioneers at Aida Cruises to see 100% biofuel used in operations to help deliver more sustainable voyages.”
