Cepsa successfully trials its 2G marine biofuel

October 10, 2022 |

In Spain, Cepsa has successfully carried out the first trial in Spain of advanced biofuels (2G) in one of the ships used by the company, the Montestena, owned by Ibaizabal, during several weeks of navigation. Thus, Cepsa reinforces its position as a pioneer in the energy transition and national leader in the supply of energy to maritime transport, a market in which it has more than 90 years of experience and presence across more than 60 ports in Spain.

Cepsa has tested the efficiency of its 2G biofuel, produced from used oils (with ISCC certificate of sustainable origin) and very low sulfur fuel (VLSFO), in its own fleet before starting to market them to its customers.

The biofuel used in the test was loaded at Cepsa’s Bioenergy plant, located in the San Roque Energy Park (Cádiz, Spain), and supplied by one of the vessels the company uses in its bunkering operations in the Bay of Algeciras. The Company had previously undertaken analysis and tests to this biofuel at its Research Center to verify its compliance with all specifications and quality standards.

The results of this test have shown an optimal operation and performance of maritime engines leading to Cepsa being able to offer these advanced biofuels to its customers in the maritime sector, who have already shown significant interest.
