Sulphur Testing

Sulphur testing is used to confirm that fuel being used by vessels does not exceed the maximum allowed sulphur content as stipulated by the International Convention for the Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships (MARPOL).

Working from our offices across the UK and Singapore and stations in China and Turkey, our specialist marine analysts can visit your vessels anywhere worldwide.

We can take spot samples of your fuel to ensure that MARPOL regulations, promoted by the IMO (International Marine Organisation) are strictly adhered to.

All samples will be sent to a specialist laboratory for testing in accordance with ISO and BS EN methods and the verification of sulphur content will be reported to you in accordance with Appendix VI of MARPOL. The full process from taking the sample to providing an analysis report can take just three days, depending on the vessel’s location. Meaning that compliance is confirmed as soon as possible.
