BIMCO tackling safety challenges around sulphur cap at IMO

06 July 2018

The safety challenges connected with the implementation of the 0.50% sulphur cap are numerous, but not insurmountable. The issues are to some extent known from the implementation of the sulphur emission control areas (SECA) in 2015, among others loss of power, leaking fuel and lower flashpoints. Other issues have to be managed by digging out the experience from the 1980’s with very bad fuel oil quality e.g. instability and incompatibility.
