Sediment problems within VLSFOs detected at six ports

As the 2020 sulphur cap entered into force, the shipping industry saw the introduction of Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oils (VLSFOs), which has been increasing since October 2019. However, VPS notes that a rise has been observed in fuel instability leading to sediment formation from these fuels. 

FOBAS warns about high sediment fuels in two Greek ports

After FOBAS tested a number of samples from the ports of Piraeus and Volos, it found out that the Total Sediment Potential was above the specified ISO 8217 limit of 0.10% mass. The TSP results of these fuel samples range from 0.17 – 0.24% mass, while other fuel parameters presented satisfactory results.
