Tonnage Procurement

– Meeting the environmental challenges in close cooperation with our long-term partners

 

January 1st 2020 was the deadline for complying with the IMO SOX environmental regulations. Ultrabulk completed the transition with no down time in close cooperation with our tonnage partners. But further challenges are approaching quickly, requiring closer cooperation between shipbuilders, tonnage providers and Ultrabulk.

 

Well in advance of the January 2020 IMO SOX restriction implementation, Ultrabulk started working with our global tonnage providers. A detailed tank cleaning programme was established and executed and the full fleet met the presented deadline without any down time on our fleet.

Parallel to the tank cleaning programme allowing the fleet to switch to new compliant low sulphur fuels in time, Ultrabulk also initiated a programme for the installation of SOX Scrubbers on a portion of our core long-term fleet. The installation of scrubbers on four existing vessels as well as the delivery of five scrubber-fitted newbuildings from key long-term tonnage partners is on schedule and expected to be completed within first half of 2020. Upon completion of this programme, the scrubber-fitted portion of the fleet will represent approximately 6 % of the full Ultrabulk fleet or 18 % of the core long-term owned and chartered fleet. This will ensure a suitable hedge against forward in the high sulphur/low sulphur bunker cost.

Meeting the IMO SOX deadline is now behind us, but the coming challenges on NOX/Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reductions is the next challenge facing our industry. Even though the deadline is more than a decade away, the need for cooperation and industry innovation and investment is the next big challenge, and we must lift in unity with not only the shipbuilders and shipowners, but also involving the cargo owners and other industries.

While the SOX challenge had suitable solutions like the installations of scrubbers or switching to compliant fuels, the coming NOX/GHG challenges presently does not have a suitable solution for the shipping industry to reach zero-emissions. There are however a lot of initiatives taken, and still to be taken, to reduce the levels of emissions.

Ultrabulk is diligently following numerous promising initiatives, both as a possible customer, but also as an investor, with the goal to support the much needed innovation to solve the challenge ahead of us.

Ultrabulk is a strong supporter of initiatives to reduce environmental footprints as set out by the authorities. We take a proactive role in working with the authorities as well as our tonnage and cargo partners to find the optimal and cost-efficient solution to the closely approaching NOX/GHG requirements including participating in studies for projects offering carbon-neutral transportation options. Such position requires considerable investment, not only in securing the actual equipment needed for compliance, but also actively cooperating in developing new options and opportunities for present and future environmental regulations.

The work has only just started and to reach the finish line, cooperation throughout the industry is essential for success. Ultrabulk is committed to carry a leading role in achieving the goal.

In 2019 Ultrabulk took delivery of three newbuilding vessels to our fleet, and with five units scheduled for delivery in 2020, we are well positioned to service our key long-terms and spot-cargo clients in the years to come.

With a maintained focus on reducing our carbon footprint, Ultrabulk will continue to work closely with the best shipbuilders in our industry and first-class reliable owners. Together we will continue the improvement of designs of the next generation of vessels by retaining focus on a strict due diligence process with our close partners.
