This paper provides information and guidance on 0.50% S fuel operation and how to prepare for the change from operation on high-sulphur fuel to 0.50% S fuel. Attention is drawn to specific fuel properties that should be in focus and how 0.50% S fuels affect the equipment on board.
Green ammonia produced from renewable sources is a strong candidate to a future compliant fuel.This paper describes the development, benefits and application of the future ammonia-propulsion solution which includes: the MAN B&W two-stroke engine designed to operate on ammonia, the LFSS, and even two-stroke ammonia-fuelled gensets.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has conducted emissions testing designed to determine, consistent with the emissions mitigation requirements of CARB’s Regulation on the Commercialization of Alternative Diesel Fuels (ADF regulation), that additives certified pursuant to that regulation are effective at mitigating biodiesel NOx emissions to equivalence with CARB diesel.
Updated instruction for indicator valves. By following precautionary measures and actions as recommended by MAN Diesel & Turbo increased safety and reliability
can be achieved.
Recently, we have received reports of a few incidents with damaged indicator valves that involved a potential risk of damage to property and serious personal injuries.
