        德国船东协会(German Shipowners’ Association,简称VDR)公布的一项调查显示,超过80%的德国航运公司计划从明年起改用新的低硫燃油(Low Sulphur Fuel Oil, LSFO)。
 
        德国船东协会指出,造成航运业发生“有史以来最大变化之一”的原因是国际海事组织(IMO)制定了更为严格的环境法规,该法规将于明年年初生效。
 
        根据国际海事组织的新规定,船用燃油含硫量不得高于0.5%,新规实施前则为3.5%。
 
        除了改用低硫燃料外,受访的德国航运公司中有11%表示将继续使用重油(HFO),这需要安装废气净化系统(exhaust gas purification system),即所谓的洗涤器。
 
        据调查,航运公司为适应新规所做的一次性投资支出平均为750万欧元(830万美元)。
 
        考虑到德国超过三分之二的航运公司是中型企业,运营的船只不足10艘,德国船东协会首席执行官拉尔夫·纳格尔(Ralf Nagel)表示,“我们意识到,个体公司在准备转型时付出了多少财力。”
 
        纳格尔补充说,从新燃料的价格来看,企业“尤其担心的是,它们未来将不得不为日常业务承担相当大的额外支出。”

German shipping companies to switch to low-sulfur fuels
 
More than 80 percent of German shipping companies are planning to switch to the new sulfur-reduced Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LSFO) from next year on, according to a survey published by the German Shipowners’ Association (VDR).
 
The reason for “one of the biggest changes” in the shipping sector is stricter environmental regulations of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), which would come into effect at the start of next year, VDR noted.
 
With the new IMO regulations, only fuels with a maximum sulfur content of 0.5 percent instead of 3.5 percent would be permitted, VDR noted.
 
Aside from the option of switching to low-sulfur fuel, eleven percent of German shipping companies surveyed would continue using Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) which required the installation of exhaust gas purification systems, the so-called scrubbers.
 
According to the survey, the one-off investment expenditure for shipping companies to adapt to the new regulations averaged at 7.5 million euros (8.3 million U.S. dollars).
 
Considering that more than two thirds of the shipping companies in Germany are medium-sized and operate fewer than ten ships, “we realize just how great the financial effort was that the individual companies had to make in preparing for the changeover,” said Ralf Nagel, chief executive officer of VDR.
 
Looking at the price of the new fuel, companies were “particularly concerned about the fact that they will have to bear considerable additional costs in their ongoing operations in the future,” added Nagel.
