ECOUREA has opened a new plant in Tananger, outside Stavanger and the partnership with Glander International Bunkering gives the marine fuels trader exclusive selling rights for ECOUREA’s range of NOx reduction technologies and products.
This is the second partnership between the two companies and as Rune G. Kongstein, GIB’s MD in Norway, explained: ‘After our first ECOUREA venture in Bergen back in 2014, we are eager to continue this success now in Stavanger, the oil capital of Norway.
‘Our company aims to be the fuel partner of choice, helping our clients reduce emissions in the most cost-efficient and compliant way. This collaboration will play a key role in our efforts towards sustainable shipping.’
Under the terms of the new agreement, GIB will provide shipping companies with an emissions control package, from the system design to the supply of Marine Urea (AUS40). This product neutralises marine fuel NOx, and is said to reduce emission levels by up to 98% in accordance with MARPOL Annex VI.
CEO of ECOUREA Justin Roberts also commented: ‘As the shipping industry witnesses a shift towards cleaner fuel, the demand for our sustainable solutions is increasing. We are pleased to work with Glander International Bunkering again to help achieve Norway’s goals for greener shipping.
