Meeting New Sulphur Limits for Marine Fuel Oil
The ability to spot check the Sulphur content of fuel oil onboard a ship will help shipowners and operators ensure compliance with the latest IMO (MARPOL) regulations.
From January 2020 the maximum allowable Sulphur content of marine fuels changed: for all areas outside the existing Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECAs) the limit was reduced from the current level of 3.50% m/m to just 0.50% m/m. Introduced by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the new limit was applied worldwide and covered the fuel oils used in main and auxiliary engines as well as in boilers. Compliance with the new regulations has since been monitored by Port State Control.
