Indonesian-flagged ships will be allowed to continue to use 3.50% sulphur fuel without the use of scrubbers. An official from the country’s Ministry of Transportation said that the cost of doing so would be too high. He was quoted by Reuters as saying: “We always put forward national interest as consideration in making the decision.”
However the 0.50% limit will apply to foreign-going Indonesian-flagged ships and to foreign-flagged ships trading between Indonesian ports.
The Indonesian-flagged fleet number about 9,000 vessels of all sizes and is mainly engaged in domestic trades.
