Aderco Shows The Smart Way To Comply With IMO 2020

Aderco – the world’s leading fuel treatment provider – has launched a new video offering a concise and detailed insight into the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) 2020 sulphur cap.

Among the issues looked at are: fuel availability; fuel costs, the increased hazards during fuel changeover procedures; fuel lubricity and incompatibility of fuels; the presence of catalytic fines and contaminants; the issues of insurance and indemnity cover and where and when the new fuels will be available.

Olivier Baiwir, CEO of Aderco, wants to ensure that everyone in the shipping world sees the video as it clearly outlines the important decision ship owners, ship managers and operators need to make in the months before the cap starts.

“The video shows people what they can expect from the new cap and how it will affect their preparations for the new fuel. We have been working with clients for more than 35 years offering them tailored solutions using fuel treatments and this video is another very useful tool in this process of explaining the cap. Rather than docking a ship for weeks and paying millions of dollars to install a scrubber, ship owners, ship managers and operators can use Aderco fuel treatment to flush and clean their tanks for the six months prior to the cap starting to ensure they are ready to be compliant with the new regulations. Aderco fuel treatments are used to treat 40 million metric tonnes of fuel every year and regular use will protect diesel engines from corrosion and contaminants.”

Aderco recently pointed out that, through close consultation, many of its customers had already made preparations to take on the new fuels and be compliant with the regulations. This new video explains why the cap is coming in and what others need to do to remain within the regulations.

“Time is not on the side of owners and operators as they need to start planning now for their tanks to be cleaned and ordering fuel treatment ready for the June 2019 start of this process. In our video we outline the benefits of using fuel treatment and why it is an ideal solution for ships that need to be at sea and on-hire without downtime. We have long said that compliance starts in the tank. Now is the time to put that into practice.”
