Norway proposes scrubber ban, 0.1% sulfur bunker fuel limit in fjords

London — The Norwegian Maritime Association has proposed prohibiting ships from using exhaust gas cleaning systems, or scrubbers, or burning fuel containing above 0.10% sulfur in the West Norwegian Fjords.

The prohibition would apply to open-loop, closed-loop and hybrid scrubber systems.

The proposals expand upon NMA's June consultation on emissions and discharges within the fjords. The June consultation recommended implementing the same sulfur requirements as emission control areas (ECAs) for the entire world heritage fjord area, stricter requirements for nitrogen oxide emissions, prohibition against the discharge of sewage, and regulations on the use of scrubbers. The West Norwegian Fjords were granted world heritage status by UNESCO in 2005.

"The Government wishes to reduce the emissions and discharges from cruise ships. Stricter requirements for ships in the world heritage fjords would be a step in the right direction," said Ola Elvestuen, Norway's climate and environment minister. The proposals form part of stricter environmental controls intended to enter into force on 1 January 201,9, and are open for comments until December 10.
