Gulf Oil Marine’s COBU can help manage IMO-compliant fuel quality issues
Europe
Speaking at Riviera’s Maritime Air Pollution, Europe conference, our Technical and Solutions Director, Mr. Don Gregory said that some of these incidents could have been resolved with a switch from the BN 40 to a higher BN cylinder oil. Gulf Oil Marine has actually developed a Cylinder Oil Blending Unit (COBU) to quickly manage the BN of cylinder oil. The completely plug-and-play COBU batch-blends cylinder oil which could be in the system within an hour, a far faster switch than traditional cylinder oil changes of up to two days.

A Helping Hand From Gulf Oil Marine
Hong Kong
When Typhoon Mangkhut smashed into Hong Kong on September 16th 2018, it was the most powerful storm on record to hit Hong Kong and left a trail of destruction across the territory. Particularly badly hit were the outlying islands, notably Po Toi, located to the south of Hong Kong. For five decades Po Toi has been the home of the famous Ming Kee seafood restaurant, founded and run by the Leung family who have made it a hugely popular destination for weekend visitors with a combination of delicious food and great hospitality.
