Fuel oil quality and safety survey to be completed until 6 May

Following the IMO 2020 regulation concerning the global sulphur limit for marine fuel, BIMCO, ICS, INTERCARGO and INTERTANKO had launched a survey on fuel oil quality and safety back in February. In remind to this, the four organisations call all vessel managers, as well as technical superintendents to share their insight.

BIMCO, ICS, INTERCARGO, INTERTANKO aim to identify potential fuel oil problems

The IMO 2020 global sulphur limit for marine fuel oil has now been in force for over one month. For this reason, BIMCO, ICS, INTERCARGO and INTERTANKO are calling on fleet- and vessel managers, as well as technical superintendents, to share their insight and experiences with the new IMO 2020 compliant fuels.

Intercargo concerned over 2020 sulphur cap safety aspects

With 1 January 2020 less than five and a half months away, Intercargo raised concerns regarding the magnitude of the challenge lying ahead for the industry, and highlighted the need for a smooth transition. Intercargo said that the requirement for the sulphur content of fuel oil used by ships operating outside designated emission control areas not to exceed 0.50% as of 1 January 2020 marks a sea change in the marine fuels’ supply chain.

Trade associations call IMO to address 2020 sulphur cap challenges

BIMCO, ICS, INTERCARGO, INTERTANKO and WSC, called the IMO to advance on challenges regarding the global sulphur cap, to avoid risking safety or unfairly penalise individual ships. The trade associations have submitted a number of proposals to IMO, aiming to help smooth the implementation of the global 0.5% sulphur.
