Supporting you to source the fuel you need.
Fuel accounts for up to 60% of a ship’s operational costs and quality is vitally important. Off-specification or contaminated fuel can adversely affect performance and cause serious damage.
Globally fuel quality varies significantly and finding the right fuel will potentially get
more difficult, with the added pressure on supply from the forthcoming International Maritime Organization (IMO) sulphur 2020 regulation.
