SOLAS Regulations

The IMO introduced new regulations concerning oil fuel arrangements through the SOLAS amendments. In particular, regulation 11-2 / 15.2.11 require that;

“Oil fuel lines shall be screened or otherwise suitably protected to avoid, as far as possible, oil spray or oil leakages onto hot surfaces, into machinery air intakes or other sources of ignition. The number of joints in such piping systems shall be kept to a minimum.”
