EU Directive on sulphur content of marine fuels

Directive 2005/33/EC as regards the sulphur content of marine fuels shall come into effect 1 January 2010. Without modifications, technical experts have warned that there is a safety risk when switching from heavy fuel oil to marine gas oil in existing boilers which may even lead to an explosion. Cefor has today joined the many industry stakeholders recommending an additional 12 months phase-in period beyond the due date to allow sufficient time for modifications and avoid unnecessary safety risks.
