Finnish fuel supply systems provider Auramarine has signed an agreement to deliver its services to a fleet of more than a thousand vessels served by MARCAS International Ltd, part of V. Group.
Auramarine fuel system services would help the vessels navigate “some of the most significant fuel regulation changes that the industry has seen in decades.”
“Cooperation with Auramarine enables us to source high-quality services and genuine spare parts from a trusted fuel system expert, while coping with the challenges of the 2020 IMO sulphur cap,” Jesper Bak Weller, Managing Director at MARCAS International Ltd, said.
“Under the agreement, Auramarine will offer advice and support to MARCAS members,” Ole Skatka Jensen, CEO of Auramarine, added.
This will include a full technical analysis of on-board fuel supply system conditions and the cost-efficient planning of customised upgrades and improvements, likely to be required for operating on the new fuels.
The agreement covers volume sourcing and the allocation of services specifically adjusted to the geographical requirements of the fleet, cost-competitive spare parts and on-board fuel system upgrades and modifications, advantageous service engineering rates, and 24/7 technical support.
