MPC Container Ships has informed that it will take a balanced approach to the sulphur oxide emissions regulation. This will be done by operating 58 vessels on compliant fuel, while retrofitting 10 ships with exhaust gas cleaning systems (scrubbers).
The Trident Alliance, a network of shipping companies and other stakeholders, informed that it welcomed MPC Container Ships and Ahrenkiel Steamship as its newest members. The latest additions have pledged to comply with the new IMO 2020 maritime sulphur regulations, while also supporting effective and transparent enforcement of these regulations.
After Indonesia announced this week that it would not implement the 2020 suplhur cap regulation on its domestic shipping fleet, The Trident Alliance expressed concerns noting that it is essential for authorities to fully enforce the regulations if fair competition is to be maintained.
The Trident Alliance, a network consisting of shipping companies and other interested parties that have the common goal on the transparent enforcement of environmental regulations, welcomes the entry of CSL Group and Oldendorff Carriers as its newest members.
The Trident Alliance, a coalition of shipowners and operators urging for a robust enforcement of maritime sulphur regulations, called for adoption without delay of IMO Carriage ban for fuel with sulphur content over 0.5%, as a means for the successful implementation of the 2020 sulphur cap.
The Trident Alliance has welcomed IMO’s decision on introduction date of the 0.5% Global Sulphur Cap, but stresses the need for a robust implementation plan. Therefore, the signatories to MARPOL Annex VI must adopt clear legal frameworks, together with a plan to ensure consistent implementation internationally, guidelines for robust enforcement and sanction schemes that are a real deterrent to non-compliance
The Trident Alliance, a coalition of ship owners and operators working to ensure robust implementation of sulphur regulations, continues to grow with new members Cargill and Fjord Line.
The Trident Alliance has written a letter to the Swedish Minister of Infrastructure to voice its concerns over the enforcement of MARPOL Annex VI Sulphur Emission Control Area and the inappropriate charging of ships of Port State Control inspections.
The introduction of the 0.50% Global Sulphur Cap is drawing near, and discussions are loud around the availability of compliant fuel and whether implementation will take place in 2020 or 2025. Very little attention is being paid to how it will be enforced. The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) and the Trident Alliance share serious concerns about the future enforcement of the Global Sulphur Cap and are now joining forces to work together on this important issue
