RN Bunker LLC - a specialized Rosneft subsidiary - has started bunkering of ships with RMLS 40, a marine fuel that has advanced environmental properties in the Far East.
The sulfur content of the fuel is below 0.5 % which is in full compliance with the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL).
The first 200 tons of the new fuel was supplied to a bulk carrier in Nakhodka waters. Low-sulfur fuel is also used by the ships operating in Bolshoy Kamen Bay that do the work for construction of Zvezda Shipyard.
This environmentally friendly marine fuel for the Far East is produced by Rosneft Komsomolsk Refinery in Khabarovsk Krai. Production of this fuel is evidence of the high-technical capability of Rosneft refineries and is an effort to minimize the impact of ships on the environment.
