On Board Ships - 2020 Readiness for using 0.50% Fuels - eLearning

This online course will explore the implications of changing to 0.50% maximum sulphur fuel in 2020. You will find out what you need to do to be prepared and how to mitigate risks by optimising fuel management.

The key objective is to bring awareness on board ships to understand the variabilities of using 0.50% marine fuels when compared with the fuels they are familiar with using today. This will equip them to know the specific aspects of 0.50% fuels they will need to be alert to and make the necessary adjustment to temperature control, machinery  plant arrangements and settings from storage  through to combustion, ensuring a safe switch over.

Key benefits:

  • Enhance the knowledge and understanding needed to  prepare for the receipt and use of 0.50% fuel bunkers.
  • Convenient and flexible, easily accessible anywhere online.
  • Time and money saving compared to classroom based courses.
  • Easily accessed by ship’s staff and senior engineers.
