Low-sulphur fuel coming

Low-sulphur fuel coming
Ships calling at the US Port of Seattle that burn low-sulphur distillate fuel will be eligible for an incentive payment of $1,500 per vessel.

Ships calling at the US Port of Seattle that burn low-sulphur distillate fuel will be eligible for an incentive payment of $1,500 per vessel.

Ships calling at the US Port of Seattle that burn low-sulphur distillate fuel will be eligible for an incentive payment of $1,500 per vessel.

Shipping lines that call into the port at least five times a year will be eligible if they switch from residual bunker fuel to the cleaner fuel while at berth. Approximately 550 of the 1,038 container vessels that call in Seattle each year are expected to be eligible for the program, a port report said.

Port Commissioners last week reportedly approved the $500,000 package that will be used to finance the initiative.

Earlier this year the port adopted the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy.

It was developed in cooperation with the Port of Tacoma and the Vancouver Port Authority to reduce emissions.

"My goal for the port is to be the cleanest, greenest, most energy efficient port in the United States, and measures like the Clean Air Strategy will go a long way toward helping us achieve that goal," said port CEO Tay Yoshitani.

"Air quality is not a local issue, it's a global one," he added.

The port authority was unavailable for further comment on the scheme when contacted by Sustainable Shipping.
