Oil major Shell’s global marine fuels network has successfully completed initial trials of its new 0.50% very low sulphur marine fuel oil (VLSFO) in preparation for the International Maritime Organization (IMO)’s 0.50% global sulphur limit for marine fuels in 2020.
Tests for the remaining market, including ship owners and charterers currently purchasing fuel with Shell who are seeking to use VLSFO to meet the new specification change are now available in Rotterdam, Singapore and New Orleans, it says.
“We’re giving customers an opportunity to test the new fuel to become more familiar with how the fuel performs in their vessels,” said Melissa Williams, Shell’s global sales and marketing manager for marine fuels.
“We will work with end users during the trials to assist them in handling VLSFO.”
The fuel is available for testing in all vessel types and engines. Trials may be expanded to other key ports in 2019.
Parties interested in participating in a trial can contact their respective regional account manager here.
