  Violation against sulfur directive

    Tuesday 4 June 2013

The Water Police in Hamburg has inspected the tanker "Korsaro" in Hamburg on June 3, 2013 and found a violation of the sulfur directive. The ship had moored at berth Rethe Kruse on June 1, coming from Porsgrunn. Officials checked the ship’s certificates and investigated the engine room. They found diesel generators and the auxiliary boiler were not converted from a high-sulphurous (within 1 percent sulfur content) to a low-sulfurous fuel (up 0.1 percent) in time.

The police took samples for accurate laboratory analysis. The chief engineer from Italy and two engineers had to deposit guarantees of € 10630.50. On June 4 at 9.45 the ship left Hamburg bound for New York.
