Strategies for Ensuring Fuel Reliability & Compliance
Efficient fuel management and safe fuel handling are critical and important to ensure fuel reliability & compliance under IMO’s 2020 sulphur regulations.

In relation to the following properties:-
Cold-Flow Properties ● Stability ● Contamination ● Cat-Fines ● Lubricity ● Low Viscosity ● Ignition & Combustion Quality & More
VLSFO & ULSMGO Critical Considerations:-
A Bonus Module will be added at the end of the course, examining best practices for Bunkering under Covid-19 conditions (or similar future scenarios), involving a discussion of the challenges, and mitigating liabilities in overcoming the challenges.
