Reminder

On 1 January 2020 the Maritime Pollution (MARPOL) regulation limiting sulphur oxide emissions from ships will become mandatory. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) cap the sulphur content of fuel to 0,50 percent globally. To comply with the new regulations, ships are required to use low-sulphur fuel oil (LSFO) more frequently or continuously.

Description

Information received

Low-sulphur fuel oil typically have a higher content of catalytic fines (cat fines) than high sulphur fuels. As cat fines are very hard, they embed in the softer metal surfaces of cylinder liners, piston grooves and rings. There is a strong evidence that vessel operators are experiencing a significant increase in frequency of engine damage as a result of excessive component wear.

Caution: Cat fines !
