Sulphur Cap conference

Technology and Efficiency | 2020 Sulphur Cap conference September 2018 BIMCO hosts 2020 Sulphur Cap, are we ready? conference The questions are many and answers few. BIMCOs Deputy Secretary General Lars Robert Pedersen kicked off the 2020 Sulphur Cap conference with these words in his welcoming speech to the audience. They proved highly relevant, summing up the spirit of the industry as the 1 January 2020 deadline approaches. Read some of the quotes and comments from the conference here: We only have about 18 months left, although we have had the past 10 years, Martin Cresswell, Technical Director of the Hong Kong Shipowners Association, said. Most fuel blends are unlikely to have been fully tested by engine makers by 2020. We are basically going into the unknown, which is very worrying.

The industry is starting to see a pickup in demand for scrubbers, James Forsdyke (right), Area Manager of Hong Kong and Taiwan Marine & Offshore at Lloyds Register Asia, said. But with 18 months to go even If every single dry dock fills up with ships now and starts fitting scrubbers nonstop until 2020, the net result is still going to be a very small proportion of the fleet, added Forsdyke, pictured with Chris Hughes (left), General Manager of Greater China Marine & Offshore Business Development, Lloyds Register, and Paul Chang, Consultant at Shenzhen Equator Fund Management Co.

It is not because we are dealing with something new and unexpected the issue is that we, the users of fuels, are regulated, while the producers of the fuels are not, said BIMCOs Deputy Secretary General Lars Robert Pedersen (left), pictured with Executive ViceMayor of Shenzhen Municipal Peoples Government Liu Qingsheng (right). After all, this is all about the charterer. We cannot have a cleaner life at the same price. There will be a cost, said Adnan Ezzarhouni (right), General Manager of GTT China, at one of the panel discussions. Connect with BIMCO Facebook Twitter Linkedin YouTube
