马士基:燃油新举措

       A.P.穆勒—马士基(A.P. Møller – Maersk)表示已与燃料储罐公司荷兰皇家孚宝集团(Royal Vopak)达成合作协议,提前应对国际海事组织(International Maritime Organization,以下简称IMO)将于2020年实施的规定。该规定要求船舶减少硫排放,所使用的燃油含硫量不得超过0.5%。
 
       马士基表示其将成为改版燃油供给设施的主要租户。这些设施位于鹿特丹的孚宝集团码头欧罗波特(Europoort),是孚宝集团在荷兰港口拥有的六个罐区之一。
 
       马士基指出,升级后的供油设施可以“安全地将不同类型的燃油混合、储存和处理,使之能够完全符合0.5%的含硫标准”。
 
       马士基现如今是孚宝集团的客户。马士基只需把其燃油储存在租借的储罐中,而孚宝集团负责码头的营运。
 
       马士基表示,孚宝集团在鹿特丹的供给设施将为其提供约20%的燃油量,即每年大概230万公吨。
 
       马士基称IMO的这一规定为 “航运界的一个转折”。
 
       尽管船公司可以选择用液化天然气(LNG)(主要是甲烷,自然不含硫)等燃料为船舶供能,或者选择继续使用高硫燃料,并在船上安装清洁装置以去除发动机尾气中的硫化物,但预计到2020年,只有少量船舶能用LNG供力推动或安装配备洗涤塔。

Maersk enters bunker venture
 
A.P. Møller – Maersk said it is entering into a joint initiative with the Dutch fuel storage company Royal Vopak in advance of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) requirement that ships reduce sulfur emissions by using bunker fuel with a sulfur content of 0.5 percent or less, beginning in 2020.
 
Maersk said it will become the anchor tenant in modified facilities at Vopak’s Europoort terminal in Rotterdam, one of a half dozen “tank farms” that Vopak has in the Dutch port.
 
The facility will allow for “safely blending, storing and handling different fuel types to ensure full compliance with the 0.5 percent sulfur cap,” said Maersk.
 
Maersk is a Vopak customer today. Maersk stores fuel it owns in tanks it leases from Vopak and Vopak operates the terminals.
 
Maersk said the Vopak facility in Rotterdam will deliver approximately 20 percent of the fuel it uses, about 2.3 million tonnes per year.
 
Maersk says the IMO requirement will be a “game changer for the entire industry.”
 
While companies do have the option of powering their ships with fuel such as LNG (which is predominantly methane and therefore naturally free of sulfur) or continuing to burn high-sulfur fuel and installing scrubbers on their ships to remove the sulfur from their engine exhaust, few ships are expected be powered with LNG or equipped with scrubbers by 2020.
