Contaminated Fuels from ARA (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp) Region

Issued: 2022-06-27 12:07:25 UTC | Category: Alerts

Recently FOBAS has investigated a number of VLSFO samples that were bunkered in the ARA region over recent months. Feedback from a number of ships that had used such fuels indicated that they encountered operational issues such as excessive wear of fuel pump plungers, barrels and fuel injectors, resulting in the ships having to stop using the subject bunkers.

Please find attached a bulletin which provides further information in relation to this.
