There are many new types of fuel available for carriers that have to comply with the sulfur regulations. And these new fuel types bring an equal number of new uncertainties. As such, Maersk Maritime Technology has yet to select a fuel type for the carrier to bet on going forward, Niels Bjørn Mortensen, Head of Regulatory Affairs at Maersk Maritime Technology, tells ShippingWatch.

"There are many new products available in addition to marine gas oil (MGO) and LNG - for instance ultra low sulfur heavy fuel (ULSHF), which could also be interesting. There are so many uncertainties surrounding these types of fuel that we're going to wait before pursuing this solution, though it cold become interesting down the road," he says.
