Air New Zealand will receive its first shipment of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) next week all the way from Neste’s Porvoo refinery in Finland. The 1.2 million liter (937 metric tons) shipment of neat SAF will provide enough for 400 return flights between Auckland and Wellington with an 80% carbon saving compared to conventional jet fuel. Local fueling partner Z Energy is overseeing what Air New Zealand hopes could soon be regular SAF imports. The Neste SAF will be discharged into Marsden Point — some 12,279 nautical miles or 51 days’ sailing from Porvoo via the Panama Canal — then transported to Auckland airport and delivered to Air New Zealand via the regular jet fuel supply system. Z Energy is a subsidiary of Australian petroleum company Ampol and operates former Shell and Chevron downstream assets in New Zealand.
