The Fanø Line ferries FENJA and MENJA will be powered by fossil-free biodiesel, reducing the total CO2 emissions up to 90%.

The plan is to let the ferries sail partly on HVO(*) biofuel from August 2021. If the start-up goes satisfactorily, the share of the new biodiesel will be increased rapidly towards the autumn, when the new electric ferry GROTTE will be put into operation by October 2021.

The Fanø line will thus be the first ferry route in Denmark, which will be completely shifted to HVO.

The environmentally friendly biodiesel comes from the Finnish manufacturer, Neste.

(*) HVO = Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil
