m/s Meri

Our special purpose vessel 'Meri' is known to be the first cargo ship of this size, which is able to use 100% bio-oil. The raw material for the biofuel comes from industry side streams, and therefore is not competing against food production. The vessel is also capable of operating in oil spill response activities. See the video of unloading of 'Meri' in Turku.
