New collaboration set to reduce London's carbon emissions with Thames floating fuel station

A new collaboration has been announced which is set to create a ‘green floating fuel station’ to reduce London’s carbon emissions.

GPS Marine, a commercial vessel operator on the River Thames, and Green Biofuels, which provides clean fuel GreenD+, are partnering up to create green floating fuel station The Dispenser.

The Dispenser is a refurbished barge and is set to make an annual carbon emission saving equivalent to 3,861 tonnes of CO2e.

John Spencer, CEO of GPS Marine, commented: “We are both proud and excited to be working with the passionate team at Green Biofuels.

“Using GreenD+, we don’t have to wait for government policy or intervention, we can make a difference right now.

“By using GreenD+, we dramatically improve the sustainability and overall CO2e savings benefits with little or no effect on reliability or cost effectiveness.

“Not only do we want to see a cleaner and greener Thames, but removing the need for on-road fuel delivery vehicles also helps to clean London’s air.

“After moving our entire Thames based fleet to a drop-in advanced fuel, we hope to set an example for other fleets to take environmental responsibility into their own hands – and put words into action.”

Magnus Hammick, COO of Green Biofuels, said: “GPS Marine are backing up their commitment to reducing air pollution and carbon emissions on the Thames with real action, and that deserves celebrating.

“We’re very proud to be partnered with one of London’s foremost river operators in helping them achieve their environmental goals, and becoming aligned with the aims of the PLA (Port of London Authority) to achieve Net Zero for the river too.”
