Ro-ro and passenger ship operator Finnlines has announced its MARPOL bunker surcharge this month for the Nordo-Link route between the Swedish port of Malmo and Travemunde, in Germany.

The marine fuel fee for August is EUR 3.66 per lane meter.

Finnlines vessels operate mainly in North Europe's Emissions Control Area (ECA), where the fuel sulphur content limit was reduced to 0.1 percent in January 2015 in accordance with MARPOL, the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships. MARPOL is concerned with the prevention of marine pollution from vessels, whilst Annex VI of MARPOL addresses air pollution from ocean-going ships.

The introduction of the 0.1 percent ECA sulphur limit has resulted in increased fuel costs for shippers that have switched from cheaper heavy fuel oil to distillates.

In the case of Finnlines, the company has attempted to mitigate the risk of higher fuel costs with the installation of scrubber systems aboard a number of its ships in addition to its vessel lengthening initiative - designed to reduce the energy consumption per transported unit - and investments in propulsion and reblading, and silicone anti-fouling.

In its latest financial report, released on Tuesday, Finnlines explained that its cargo-related bunker surcharges have been higher since the recent increase in fuel prices.
