What options will be open to ship owners if IMO’s MEPC agrees in October to push for a global sulphur cap of 0.5% in 2020? Barely any scrubbers have been installed on ships but engine builders have designs ready for every outcome. Will some operators consider continuing to use 3.5% sulphur fuel or have preparations started to prepare for the pending cap? The shipping industry is at a crossroads.
IHS Maritime and Trade, host a roundtable discussion providing an overview of the existing position, identifying the options available if the date chosen is 2020, 2025 or anywhere in between, and offer takeaways to enable robust decision-making when MEPC makes its own position clear.
The event is moderated by Richard Clayton, Chief Maritime Correspondent.
