“With increasing public and regulatory concern over air pollution, we must prepare that exhaust emission limits will be applied. Such limits will be both direct, covering such aspects as engine design, or indirect as in the case of fuel oil sulphur limits. The resulting limits will have potentially major influence on shipbuilders and fuel suppliers, but will also require close attention by operators to ensure necessary procedures are in place and effectively implemented” reports Udo Kleinitz, ICOMIA’s Technical Manager in the December issue of The Superyacht Report.

ICOMIA brings together national marine industry associations in one global organisation and represents them at an international level, presenting a strong and united voice when dealing with issues challenging the industry.
