Wärtsilä partners with Holland America Line and GoodFuels on 70% and 100% biofuel trials

October 20, 2022 |

In the Netherlands, Wärtsilä partnered with Carnival Corporation’s Holland America Line and Netherlands based GoodFuels, a market leader in sustainable biofuels, to carry out ship trials operating with biofuel blends. In addition to a 70 percent diesel / 30 percent biofuel blend, the tests were conducted with 100 percent biofuel to determine the effect on overall engine performance, as well as on engine emissions.

The testing was carried out on a Wärtsilä ZA40 engine installed onboard the Holland America Line vessel ‘Volendam’. While there have been earlier trials with lower blends of biofuel, this is the first testing by Wärtsilä on a cruise ship operating with 100 percent biofuel.
