Get ready for IMO 2020

IMO 2020

With IMO 2020, a 0.5% sulphur cap will take effect and you’ll have to change your fuel to remain compliant. Complying with the emission regulation is more than just switching over to new fuel. Preparing your vessel bunker tank for the fuel switch-over marks the first step of the journey towards complying with the regulation.

How do you mitigate risks of non-compliance?

    Problem

    Sludge and sediments form over time and settle at the side and bottom of your vessel bunker tanks. If these impurities are not removed, there are huge risks associated when mixing in new IMO 2020 compliant fuel. You will face fuel compatibility issues, damage to the engine and machinery and other operational risks.

    Solution:

    4-6 months of treatment programme to clean the bunker tanks
