Shipowners’ Major Concerns Over the 2020 Sulphur Cap Compliance

We asked shipowners at GST & Shipping2030 about the challenges they foresee when it comes to 2020 compliance. The issue of enforcement, scrubbers’ impact on marine life, and fuel tank cleaning was mentioned, but overall, the biggest concern remains to be the uncertainty of what fuels will be available in 2020 for shipowners and for how much.

Watch this video for comments from Erik Lewenhaupt, Head of Sustainability at Stena Line Group, Eivind Holte, Senior Technical Manager at Saga Shipholding, Donald Werner, HSQE Manager at Furetank Rederi AB, and Thomas David, Head New Building, Project Management at John T Essberger.

Mr. Lewenhaupt will be at our Future Fuels for 2020 Compliance Seminar as well, where he will present a case study of alternative fuels in the real world! Join us in London!
