ClassNK has issued a poster for onboard use which details the common main engine issues and recommended countermeasures when using very low sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO).

After examining reported issues along with the properties of compliant fuel oils, the class society says it has compiled recommended measures for early detection and prevention of issues on board. The information has been released in a poster format so that crew members can quickly refer to it in case of any problems.
