    • Can lead to various problems related to engine and its auxiliaries
    • Can lead to vessel delays and vessel off-hire and re bunkering in case of compatibility issues.
    • Claims from bunker dispute is complicated due to lack of evidence, representative samples, storage and consumption documents, fuel analysis report
    • Fuel quality appears to meet relevant fuel specification; extensive testing reveals presence of unusual material
    • Linking engine damage has proved difficult, and it has been necessary to undertake metallurgical examination of worn or damaged components
    • When purchasing bunker, it is essential that correct grade is specified and sale and purchase agreement include appropriate description of fuel supplied. This
    • is done by ISO 8217 and identification of required grade within this standard (e.g.: ISO 8217:2012 – RMG380)
    • Therefore CE to check quality of fuel to be supplied according to BDN and must at least contain viscosity, sulphur content and density
