Low Sulphur Operations Training Course
US $200.00

On January 1st 2020 a new regulation regarding low sulphur content in fuel came into force. To be able to comply with the new regulation many ships must either install an exhaust treatment plant (scrubber) or they must use low sulphur fuel which requires some operational changes to their machinery.

The Low Sulphur Operation onboard course has been developed to put focus on operational challenges related to switching between high and ultra-low sulphur fuels. Switching between high and ultra-low sulphur fuels has become a reality for many vessels trading in and out of emission control areas. After 1 January 2015 a vessel operating in an emission control area can not use fuel with a sulphur content exceeding 0.1%. Due to very different properties of high and ultra-low sulphur fuels this can lead to both economical and operational challenges for the affected vessels. Failure to comply with the regulations could result in vessel detention or prosecution. 

On completion of this course you will receive Documentary Evidence from Ocean TG powered by Seagull and Videotel.
