Malaysian Shipowners' Association (MASA) in collaboration with the Maritime Division of the Ministry of Transport Malaysia organised a 2020 Global Sulphur Limit Awareness Forum at Dorsett Putrajaya on Thursday (25 April).
The forum was officiated by Deputy Transport Minister, YB Dato 'Kamarudin Jaffar, according to a statement from the Ministry of Transport Malaysia.
He noted the Malaysia shipping sector preparing itself for IMO 2020, when a global sulphur cap of 0.5% for marine fuels will be implemented from 1 January 2020.
“Measures such as supply of compliant fuels, fuel pricing, implementation of alternatives such as scrubber systems and other related issues need to be addressed,” he told delegates in a keynote speech as quoted by The Star.
“We also take note of the initiatives by several industry players to drive this campaign forward with innovative solutions, such as the implementation and development of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as bunker fuel as well as the supply of Low Sulphur Fuel Oil, to ensure our shipping industry remains steadfast and not affected negatively by the regulations.”
A total of 120 participants from various backgrounds participated in the forum.
