The analyser that guarantees in just 130 seconds whether your ship complies with the new IMO sulphur limits
Non-compliance with the new IMO limits will result in heavy penalties and the blocking of the offending ship in port.
The XRF Analyser (manufactured by Parker / Kittiwake) has the ability to check the sulphur content of fuel oil on board in just 130 seconds. It helps shipping companies and ship operators to ensure compliance with the latest IMO regulations (regulation 14, annex VI of the MARPOL Convention).
From 1 January 2020 the maximum permitted sulphur content of marine fuels has changed: for all areas outside the existing Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA´s) the limit will be reduced from the current level of 3.50% m/m to only 0.50% m/m. For SECA areas and EU ports it is reduced to 0.10% m/m.
Introduced by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the new limit applies worldwide and covers fuel oils used in main and auxiliary engines as well as in boilers. Failure to comply with the rule will result in heavy penalties and the blocking of the offending ship in port.
