DHL GFF’s topic of the month: “Carriers are preparing for the implementation of the IMO 2020 sulphur fuel cap. The total number of scrubber orders for container vessels has gone up to over 540 units. Maersk has committed to the installation of scrubbers on some 50 of its container vessels, thus revising its previous position to primarily rely on low Sulphur fuel. MSC leads the scrubber way with an estimated 180 units ordered for owned & chartered vessels. CMA CGM scrubber fitted fleet will consist of around 40 vessels. In addition the carrier will have 20 LNG powered vessels, including five newly ordered 15’000 TEU ships.”
