Industry on alert as off-spec IMO 2020-compliant fuel oil is detected

Samples of fuel oil complying with the IMO 2020 sulphur limit supplied out of Rotterdam, were found containing sediment levels above a limit set by an industry standard. High-sediment content in marine fuels can clog up ship engines

Fuel oil products with off-spec sediment content have resurfaced in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp region after a similar high-sediment level problem was found at the start of the year, as well as in Singapore. While concerns about off-spec bunkers have grown as more blends enter the bunker stream in the wake of IMO 2020 regulations
