Today’s market depends more than ever on the reliability and efficiency of marine engines. Environmental legislation is putting pressure on ship owners, managers and operators to reduce emissions and move to much lower sulphur fuels – whether this is the traditional residual heavy fuel oil, or marine distillate.

New legislation from the International Maritime Organisation on Emission Control Areas is changing the fuels used by the shipping industry. The drive to introduce marine fuels with increasingly lower sulfur content – both HFO and distillate grades - is presenting a challenge for ship owners and marine engineers.

Whether you are staying with HFO, or changing to marine diesel fuels - We have the answer. From 1 January 2020 there will be a mandatory requirement to use marine fuels with a maxiumum sulphur content of 0.5% by mass. In prepraration for this storage tanks and fuel handing system need to be ready to accept compliant fuel.
