Global Sulphur Cap is almost there


The Global Sulphur Cap 2020 regulations specify that every vessel must adhere to strict sulphur emissions limits by 1 Jan 2020 or face significant consequences, including fines and delays to your shipping schedule.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) have promised that this deadline isn’t going to change.

Your fleet needs to be made ready for whichever solution you choose to comply. Not only this, but your engines need to be more efficient to secure your competitiveness for the future. But time is almost up. You need to engage with an engine partner now with the right expertise and engine solutions in place to guide you successfully through this transition. 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.

Are your business prepared for the IMO Global 0.5% Sulphur limit? Check out our solution on how to prepare for the change from engine operation on high-sulphur fuel to 0.50% S fuel.
