Singapore-based shipping firm AAL, a global multipurpose operator that serves the breakbulk, heavy lift and project cargo industry, on Thursday (1 August) issued an official statement on its plans to become fully compliant with IMO 2020 by the end of 2019.
“AAL has served the multipurpose heavy lift sector for 25 years and we welcome the positive global impact it will have on our environment and the health of current and future generations,” stated its management.
“Over the past year, we’ve been researching the options available and decided that migration to the use of low sulphur fuel (fuel with sulphur content of 0.5% or less and fully compliant with the IMO legislation) will best meet the interests of the customers, trades and industries we service globally.
“This fuel comprises variants such as Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LSFO), Ultra Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (ULSFO) and Low Sulphur Marine Gasoil (LS-MGO), all currently more expensive than standard marine fuel.”
Moving forward, AAL says it will be implementing various calculation methodologies to fairly share the increased cost of low sulphur fuel usage with its customers; the measures will come into effect from 1 September 2019.
