Intercargo invokes a greater involvement of the marine industry in the deliberations of the IMO

In sight of the application of the new norms on the fuel, the association has evidenced as already now it is difficult to control the quality of the bunker

In occasion of the reunions of the shareholders' meeting of the association and its technical and directive committees, than mondays and yesterday to London, Intercargo have held, the international organization that represents shipowners that manage ships for the transport of loaded buckets, is examined various topics that interest the activity of the operators of the field, between which the introduction beginning from on January 1°, 2020 of the limit of 0.5% of the sulfur tenor in fuel used from the ships as established from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) with the introduction of amendments to Annexed YOU of the Convention Marpol (International Conventiomn for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships).

The shipowning association has restated the worry of the marine industry about the effective availability at the beginning of 2020 of consistent fuel to the norms, alarm that - Intercargo has complained - is garbled also to level IMO. Remembering that the success of the norm and its to regulate performance is up to the Member States of the IMO, while the enterprises of refining, the suppliers of bunker and the charters will have to take care all over the world to assure the consistent fuel availability, availability that can constitute a problem in particular for the ships that carries out not regular transports tramp, Intercargo has emphasized that the same quality control of new consistent fuel represents a great challenge already in itself since it has been revealed extremely difficult to currently face the most serious problems found with fuel in use.

Intercargo however has restated also to have received with favor the initial strategy adopted from the IMO for the reduction of gases to greenhouse effect emitted from the ships and has specified that it will continue to participate to the deliberations near the IMO. The shipowning association has but specified that the objectives ambitiouses who have been fixed will demand technical solutions adapted since - Intercargo has explained - to the gas emissions greenhouse they depend in great part by as the ships are planned of new construction and by the technologies of which they are equipped, from their engines and machinery, let alone from the type of fuel that is used. Intercargo therefore has evidenced the absolute necessity that is the charters that the operators of ships, than often are responsible for use it of the ships, are the naval constructors who the producers of engines and the fuel suppliers are involved in the Maritime deliberations of the Internazional Organization.

In the within of the shareholders' meeting of Intercargo while the new president and the two vices president of the association are elected who will assume the assignment of biennial duration next 1° January.
