New GO2 superfuel goes on sale in Europe

New GO2 superfuel goes on sale in Europe

A diesel catalyst that could reduce superyacht fuel consumption by 8 to 13 per cent is now available to buy.

The nanotechnology-based diesel combustion catalyst GO2 is for sale through ECOsuperyacht, the sole distributor for the European yachting market. During combustion GO2 produces a more powerful and more complete burn, which requires less fuel for the same output by the engine.

Cost savings from this improved efficiency are likely to be large. Richard Franklin, Managing Director of ECOsuperyacht evaluated attendance data from last year’s Antigua Charter Show to illustrate GO2’s effectiveness.

‘The 25 largest yachts of over 45 metres in length packing passage to the Caribbean from Europe and back could have saved themselves between 700,000 litres and one million litres of fuel by using GO2, enjoying an average saving of 30,000 litres on a round trip, worth €22,500 per boat at current tax free fuel prices,’ Franklin states.

The fuel can be dispatched from the company’s warehouses in the UK, Gibraltar or Palma de Mallorca to anywhere in Europe, within 72 hours of payment receipt. ECOSuperyacht also offers a supply agreement to owners who want to use GO2 regularly, to prevent them from running low during the season.

Superyacht owners can use a specialised calculator on the ECOsuperyacht website to work out their potential annual cost savings from using GO2. The catalyst was developed by American nanotechnology specialist Cerion Energy and has been trialled in the 45 metre explorer yacht Big Fish, and the 62 metre yacht Apogee, with results expected imminently. Initial reports from the captains have been highly positive.
