A new direction for the future


On 1 January 2020, the global shipping industry became a little greener than before, when the International Maritime Organization (IMO) introduced the Global Sulphur Cap regulation. From now on, every vessel worldwide must adhere to strict sulphur emissions or face significant consequences, including fines and delays to shipping schedules.

Were you ready?


More than 60,000 vessels worldwide needed to make the necessary changes in order to comply with the new regulation from IMO. With limitations in production lines, logistics and workforce, chances are that not everyone made it in time.

To stay compliant, your fleet needs to be made ready for whichever solution you have chosen to reduce sulphur emissions. But to stay competitive, you also need your engines to perform efficiently to meet future demands. Therefore, you need to engage with an engine partner with the right expertise and engine solutions in place to guide you successfully through this transition. 

Check out our solution on how to prepare for the change from engine operation on high-sulphur fuel to 0.50% S fuel. This includes retrofitting your fuel system with a  2020 Filter Solution upgrade to protect your vessel from increased levels of cat fines in HFO and low sulphur fuels.
