Neptune - Bunker Info tab updates
Let’s zoom in on VLSFO quality which is being supplied in Antwerp.
In the current period, VLSFO bunkers delivered in Antwerp have failed to comply with the Sulphur content limit in 5.6% of cases. 3.9% of samples have shown Sulphur content between 0.50% m/m and 0.53% m/m, while 1.7% of test results exceeded 0.53%m/m – the level above which a buyer can claim that the specification has not been met.

For example, cat fines exceeded the standard limit in 2.1% of samples, a maximum figure being 252 mg/kg (!). 1.1% samples failed on Pour Point being above 30°C, while 6.9% of samples have been marginally on-spec falling in the 25-30°C range.
