How are two of the world's pace-setting shipping companies preparing their fleets and employees for the sulfur regulations that will come into force on Jan. 1, 2020? How will they ensure the right bunker blend so that the engines are not damaged? That there is enough bunker available, and that it is available when the ship needs it? That the tanks are completely clean? That the scrubbers are working as they should? And can one continue to sail if the scrubbers malfunction? Is it most advantageous to bunker in Singapore, or should one sail to other places in Asia?
There are still many questions left to be answered, even though shipping companies across the globe have for years been preparing for the date 01.01.2020. Most of the global fleet will use one of the new fuel blends with sulfur content of less than 0.5 percent. The rest will comply with regulations by installing a scrubber to clean sulfur from the exhaust gas.
