The energy major has begun the supply of its 0.50% sulphur Engineered Marine Fuels in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp (ARA) and Singapore.
The proprietary EMF.5 fuels are engineered to be compatible with each other provided that handling, storage and use best practice is followed. The fuels meet the ISO 8217-2017 specification and have also passed ExxonMobil’s ‘rigorous fit-for-use assessments’.
ExxonMobil officially introduced the EMF.5 branding in July, and also disclosed that it intends to offer the IMO 2020-compliant fuel at the Port of Zeebrugge. The company has also identified other initial locations will be offering the fuel as Marseille and Genoa in the Mediterranean, and Thailand.
