MARPOL/LSS

In 2008, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has adopted a resolution amending Annex VI to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL).
The revised Annex VI imposes strict limits of sulphur content allowed in marine fuels used by vessels sailing in SOx Emission Control Areas (SECA) which also incorporate the Baltic Sea. The objective of amended provisions of Annex VI was to limit to 1% the content of sulphur in the fuel as from 1st July 2010 and, subsequently, to further reduce the said limit to 0.1% as from 1st January 2015

Fulfilment of these very strict requirements means that all Shipowners operating within the SECA Region shall be required to adapt their fleet, which in most of the cases means the necessity of use of expensive low sulphur content fuel MGO instead of the so-called heavy fuel oil IFO.

Hereby we inform that ongoing trend on fuel market allows to verification of  LSS (Low Sulfur Surcharge). LSS surcharge in 2016 will be as bellow:

- 19 SEK per each commenced meter of vehicles on Świnoujście - Ystad/Świnoujście Copenhagen via Ystad line, and

- 45 SEK per each commenced meter of vehicles on Gdańsk - Nynashamn line.

Low Sulfur Surcharge MARPOL-LSS is constant. In the case of the subsequent changes in fuel prices, adjustments will be applied in current BAF fuel surcharge.

BAF
