How to ensure compliance with IMO’s regulation on Sulphur 2020 in the most cost-efficient way
Stricter limits on sulphur (SOx) emission are already in place in Emission Control Areas (ECAs) in Europe and the Americas, new control areas are being established in ports in China and sulphur emission cap will be implemented globally after 2020.
As a result of the increased international attention to air pollution, a growing number of shipowners are beginning to weigh their options to ensure compliance. They face a choice of switching from heavy fuel oil (HFO) to marine gas oil (MGO), burning ultra-low Sulphur HFO/hybrid fuel, retrofitting vessels to use alternative fuels such as LNG or installing scrubber systems which allow them to continue operating on regular HFO.
To assist in navigating both the regulatory landscape and the alternatives for compliance, this presentation aims to provide an introduction to the choices and challenges ahead. We recommend starting planning and acting as soon as possible, to ensure compliance in the most cost-efficient way.
The presentation will be held by Mr M Shahrin Osman Regional Manager, Maritime Advisory, DNV GL Maritime Region South East Asia, Pacific & India. Mr M Shahrin Osman has significant experience in strategy related work for the maritime sector including development of new product or solutions such as LNG bunkering and alternative fuels, martime cluster development and application of new technologies within the maritime and offshore sector.
