January 1st is approaching rapidly, and this means that the sulfur regulations will come into force very soon. But the carriers' imminent deadline does not make Tallink change its stance. The passenger and RoRo carrier's attitude is set in stone: no thanks to scrubbers, yes please to low sulfur fuel oil.
"What we will do at this point is just use more expensive fuel with a lower sulphur content. It is the simplest transition at the present moment, although it's also the most expensive," Andres Hunt, vice chairman of Tallink Grupps' Board of Directors, tells Baltic News Service according to Sustainable Shipping.
