EN590 Certified fuel - no guarantee for reliable tug operation
Fuel is often not as clean as you might think. Although the EN590 standard determines the acceptable fuel contamination level in mg/kg and water content in ppm, tugboats using EN590-certified fuel still risk breakdown from contamination......
Operating with bad quality fuel, you risk:
Wear on injector
- risk of leakage
- risk of blockage of filters
fuel storage tank
- risk of engine breakdown
