FCM Challenges – Fuel Changeover
Due to various emission control areas, ships need to be able to change fuels quickly and efficiently. This is a complicated process, as there can be huge differences in optimal operating conditions for the fuels, and viscosities need to be kept within a tight range. Alfa Laval has the solution.
FCM Challenges – Unpredictable fuel scenario
Engines and vessels are constantly evolving and advancing, and the emissions regulations around the world are always subject to change. This can make preparations for the future a little challenging, but Alfa Laval has developed a range of boosters equipped to deal with whatever happens.
FCM Challenges – Running on MGO
Ships are usually designed to run on heavy fuel oil, but as regulations change many ship owners are looking to fuel vessels with marine gas oil (MGO), which is lighter and more environmentally friendly. However, it’s a challenging process to switch between these fuel types, and MGO needs to be conditioned properly. Alfa Laval has the answer.
