NORFOLK, Va. – July 17, 2017 – The organizers of SHIPPINGInsight today announced that Chevron Marine Lubricants will host a special seminar prior to the 2017 Fleet Optimization Conference & Exhibition.

The seminar will take place 5 to 6 p.m., Monday, Oct. 9, at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa in Stamford, Connecticut. Chevron speakers will be Mike Sarisky, Account and Technical Manager for the Americas, and Monique Vermeire, Fuels Technologist. They will address pressing questions regarding the impact of ECA legislation on marine propulsion systems, fuels and lubricants.

“We are focusing on being future-ready by addressing concerns around upcoming legislation and reassuring our customers and partners that we have the lubrication solutions, technological expertise and services to meet the challenges that lie ahead,” said Ayten Yavuz, Regional Manager, Marine, for Northwest Europe and Americas.

Carleen Lyden Walker, SHIPPINGInsight Co-Director, observed, “Lubricants will be a major issue as shipowners ponder their options for low-sulfur diesel and alternative fuels to meet the growing ECA emission zones, and we encourage the shipping community to take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about this critical subject.”

The sixth SHIPPINGInsight Fleet Optimization Conference & Exhibition will be held at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa, Oct. 10-12.
