MARINE PROPULSION AND FUTURE FUELS. FUEL TRENDS INTO THE 1990'S

The article consists of three individual sections, (1) current and anticipated trends in marine fuels, (2) the views of a shipowner, and (3) how the diesel engine can cope (exemplified by the "mwm" engine). Refining techniques are described and the effect of "vis-breaking" and fluid catalytic cracking on the heavy residues used for bunker fuel is outlined, considering fuel purification and compatibility of mixing. Future lubricants are briefly dealt with. The owner's view on the relationship between fuel viscosity and price is presented. Order from NSFI as No. 17458.
