MARINE FUEL ANALYSIS
Monday 18 - Tuesday 19 May 2020 ~ Two-day course
Early Bird Pass: £1,050 (Early Bird ends Friday, 6 March 2020)
Standard Pass: £1,250
The objective of this two-day course is to explain the origin, development and use of international marine fuel standard ISO 8217. It will examine how the standard works and what its limitations are. It will also explore the development of additional test procedures, both for screening and for the forensic examination of fuels. It will also highlight the issues between ISO 8217 and MARPOL Annex VI.
The course is aimed at buyers, superintendents and engineers with a good working knowledge (but not specialist knowledge) of marine fuels. It should help formulate buying practices, bunker claim management and preparation for the International Maritime Organization’s 2020 global sulphur cap. All current test methods will be explained. The course will also examine four major quality incidents and see how they have changed the way we test fuels.
The course price also includes course manual in English with all presentations and exercise materials, light lunch, morning and afternoon refreshments.
On completion of the course, delegates will receive a course completion certificate.
