Damage to Marine Scrubber Systems

Two ships exhausts

1 January 2020 brought with it the IMO's global limit of 0.5% sulphur in marine fuels.

Our plan is triggered by damage to a vessel's scrubber system. If an owner must switch from a cheaper Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) to costlier, compliant Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LFO), this product will cover the difference in fuel costs in the period up to first available repair.

Optional cover is also available for additional lump-sum costs for the cleaning of tanks and machinery needed to switch fuel, removal of HFO and net deviation to port, plus a limited standard LOH cover for scrubber damages only.
