Total Global Sulfur Cap 2020 Forums

Together with Total Marine Fuels Global Solutions, Total Lubmarine will be visiting customers in major hubs this spring to discuss our solutions to the challenges posed by the 2020 Sulfur Cap.

With less than a year until the implementation of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2020 0.5% Global Sulfur Cap, Total is holding a series of forums to help ship operators finalize their compliance plans. The events will showcase Total’s current range of fuel and lubricant solutions as well as new products under development to support 2020 compliance strategy.

Experts from across Total will tour the world’s major shipping hubs to discuss solutions and safe operations in 2020 and beyond. They will be sharing their expertise to support ship operators finalize their compliance plans ahead of next year’s January 1 deadline.

Speaking on the announcement, Serge Dal Farra, Marketing Director at Total Lubmarine commented: “The full range of our best marine expertise will be available at these forums, with everything from fuel quality and lubricant compatibility through to future fuels and availability on the agenda.”

Jérôme Leprince-Ringuet, Managing Director at Total Marine Fuels Global Solutions added: “There are many routes to IMO 2020 compliance and Total has invested considerable resources to ensure that a range of high, low and zero sulfur fuels will be available in all key bunkering hubs.”
