In the light of a Global Sulphur Cap 2020, course participants will be brought up to date on the statutory requirements for reduction of sulphur emissions in international seafaring.

Fuel with reduced sulphur will influence various installations and components on board.

New fuels entered the market recently which need a different approach in terms of fuel stability, fuel compatibility and catalytic fines. 

Practical examples gained from experience within DNV GL are given during the course. Case studies are used to deepen understanding and trigger more detailed discussion of the implications of using different fuel.

The course focuses on:

  • Keeping the ship in-line with new international requirements while maintaining safe and profitable operational conditions and avoiding damage to machinery
  • Avoiding fines and port state detentions by being in compliance with new regulations
  • Being able to design, construct and inspect a ship with respect to the latest international regulations relating to fuel
