Modern ships' propulsion technology aims to increase efficiency and environmentally friendly exhaust gas emissions. To achieve these goals, standardisation of specific parameters are needed, to identify adequate fuel quality for each propulsion system.
Marine fuel oil specifications are useful for on-board engineers, to adjust and supervise the treatment process, avoiding breakdowns and failures in the ship's machinery.
The course offers knowledge about standardised specifications, provided for both, distillate and residual fuel oil, used in the maritime industry. Being familiar with each parameter will help to prevent and detect mechanical problems, in respect of regulations among different scenarios of ship operations and related to different ship propulsion system configurations.
Physical and chemical properties are important to provide the best treatment process, depending on different uses and storage conditions, e.g. during winter or summer, but not all the issues are covered by fuel standards.
