The 1st of January the Sulphur Directive 2012/33/EU became operative for vessels that traffic the Baltic Sea, North Sea and the English Channel. This means that vessels must use fuel that contains not more then 0,1% sulphur or install technical solutions to gain the same effect.
As a consequence of necessary environmental investments Color Line AS has introduced a fixed MARPOL surcharge effective from the 1st of January 2015.
As a consequence of the present price movement in the bunker oil market, we have decided that we will revise our bunker charge (BAF) the following period, valid from the 15th of August 2017 in accordance with the enclosed Mixton scale.
