De-bunkering is a process of offloading bunker fuel from the vessel. This occurs when the bunkers are deemed as unfit for use in the ship’s machinery.
High contains of Sulphur oxides (SOx) lead to acid rain, which can harm the environment, contribute to the acidification of the ocean, and endanger aquatic species. To prevent this invisible pollution, the IMO tried to limit SOx emission from the vessels. To reduce the pollution and protect the environment, IMO come out the new regulations which control the emission from 3.5% to 0.50% m/m (mass by mass) in the beginning of 2020. Which use of HSFO is prohibited but replace the fuel oil with Light Sulphur Fuel Oil (LSFO).
The general rule is if your company owns/manage/operate ships, such as shipping liners or ship charterers for cruises. Overtime, the quality of bunker fuel will depreciate till a time it is deem unfit for use. At that time, you will need to acquire companies like Pentas Flora Maritime to perform de-bunkering services.
