Oil Condition Monitoring & the 2020 Global Sulphur Cap

Managing Change – Oil Condition Monitoring & the 2020 Global Sulphur Cap 

By Paul Parkinson – VPS Global OCM Business Development Leader

9th May 2018 

Driven by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), the marine industry is currently going through important and significant environmental changes through a reduction in sulphur content of marine fuel from 3.5% to 0.5%. To fulfil this new requirement, stakeholders in the industry are debating and considering the merits of alternative fuels, different engine equipment and configurations as well as advances in scrubber cleaning technology. Fuels and lubricants both come into contact with engine systems so any changes that occur will have an even wider impact on marine vessel equipment. To minimise the impact of any negative consequences it is important to manage this change effectively.
