Independent commodity trading and logistics house Trafigura is planning to install scrubbers on 32 newbuild oil and product tankers, reports Reuters.
The vessels are scheduled for delivery from the fourth quarter of 2018 (Q42018) to 2019.
“The first vessels will be delivered in October this year. All will be equipped with scrubbers,” said the company in an email statement.
International Maritime Organization (IMO) rules state all vessels will need to use 0.5% sulphur limit marine fuel, or implement appropriate measures to meet lower emissions equal to the consumption of such fuels, from 2020 onwards.
Vessels sailing within international waters currently need to meet the 3.5% sulphur limit under IMO rules.
