Enroll in this course and acquire the essential knowledge on marine fuels, including their composition, properties, analysis characterization, on-board fuel storage and handling. A practical part is included in which specific issues associated with the marine fuel quality and the contaminants – catalyst fines are discussed. The course is organized with the cooperation of experts from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece.
