December, 2019 - Sulphur Series 08: Compliance with the sulphur cap – is there a margin for error?
- Date: 13/12/2019
Where newly stemmed bunkers are found to contain more than 0.50% sulphur, at the very minimum, this is likely to result in time loss and disruption while samples are tested again and in worst case scenarios, the time and costs of de-bunkering and tank cleaning operations may have to be incurred. Failure to react promptly and appropriately may also lead to penalties, fines or detention. It is important that Members are fully aware of what steps should be taken to minimise losses and liabilities.
