Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) plans to comply with the IMO’s 2020 sulphur cap by adopting various available measures, including scrubber and LNG retrofits as well as low-sulphur fuel.

“We will proceed on a ship-by-ship basis, aware that we cannot limit ourselves to one particular measure. In April 2018, the targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions including CO2 emissions from international shipping were decided, then the concrete measures to achieve will be discussed,” President and CEO of K Line, Eizo Murakami, said in the company’s report 2018.

As explained, all of the options will be explored, including alternative fuels, deciding on a ship-by-ship basis.
