IUMI Webinar: IMO 2020 – one year in

The IMO 2020 regulations to reduce the sulphur limit to 0.5% have been in place just over a year. An industry survey carried out by BIMCO, International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), INTERCARGO and INTERTANKO into the transition to using very low-sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO) since the beginning of 2020 has found that several issues have arisen for owners, charterers and insurers. The survey indicated global challenges with fuel characteristics and limits being off specifications as well as certain operational problems.

In this webinar, Charlotte Røjgaard, Global Head of Marine Fuel Services at Bureau Veritas’ VeriFuel will share observations on the IMO 2020 fuel qualities and offer a review of several problematic cases. This will be followed by George Margetis, Managing Director at Margetis Maritime Consulting who will address specific claims which have arisen due to the new fuel types.

Following the presentations, participants are invited to participate in a Q&A session. Questions can also be submitted prior to the webinar to
