Travelling sauna powered by renewable diesel

Neste has announced that its low carbon drop-in renewable diesel will be used to fuel a ‘travelling sauna’ that will be touring the US West Coast throughout 2017.

The travelling sauna is a fully-functional Finnish sauna on wheels that will travel 12 000 miles across the US throughout this year to celebrate the centenary of Finland’s independence.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel will be used to fuel the truck carrying the sauna, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% compared to conventional petroleum diesel.

The traveling sauna is hauled by a Ford F-250 pick-up truck with a turbo diesel engine.

Jeremy Baines, VP sales North America, Neste, said: "There are not many things that Finns love more than sauna. To haul one across the US is a rather crazy, yet a fun way of celebrating the centenary of Finland's independence. It is our pleasure to make the sauna's journey much more environmentally friendly with our Neste MY Renewable Diesel.”
