Neste and AS Tallink Grupp have agreed to continue their cooperation in 2017. In accordance with the agreement, Neste will supply low-sulfur marine fuel to Tallink Grupp's vessels calling at Finnish ports.
"We are very pleased to continue our cooperation with AS Tallink Grupp, one of the largest passenger and freight shipping companies in the Baltic Sea region. Sustainability and investing in high-quality customer service are common denominators of our companies. Our premium-quality, low-sulfur marine fuel meets the stricter regulations and is easy to adopt to lower sulfur emissions," says Panu Kopra, Executive Vice President, Oil Retail at Neste.
"We began cooperating with Neste already in 2015. In particular, we appreciate Neste's reliability as a supplier, their logistics expertise and their added value services. Fuel deliveries have been quick, safe and punctual. Neste's low-sulfur fuel suits us well due to its environmental friendliness and technical properties," says Tarvi-Carlos Tuulik, Head of Ship Management at AS Tallink Grupp.
The current EU and international regulations demand lower sulfur emissions from ships operating on the Baltic Sea, North Sea and English Channel. Neste is currently offering two low-sulfur marine fuels (Neste MDO DMB and Neste RMB), with sulfur concentrations of less than 0.1 percent.
"We are proud that our marine fuels have helped our customers to reduce their sulfur emissions. We will continue to develop our products and services further to serve our customers even better," Kopra continues.
