Keynote Speaker - Anders Hyrup
IMO 2020: a Major Shake-Up for the Shipping Industry

What does the “IMO 2020 Regulation” really say? - Commonly referred to as IMO 2020, new ship emission regulations issued by the International Maritime Organization require vessels use lower-sulfur bunkering fuel effective January 1, 2020. This means a new, lower sulfur fuel oil must be created, plus prices for low sulfur product will likely rise as demand will be high and supply low. 

Anders Hyrup has since 1999 worked commercial roles for well-established European Ship Owners in the Multi-Purpose and Heavy Lift market. He relocated from Denmark to Houston in 2010 to develop the North American market for Nordana – Project & Chartering Division. He joined SAL Heavy Lift, Inc in 2012 and holds the position of President and oversees the commercial activities with all clients based in USA, Canada and Mexico.

SAL Heavy Lift, Inc is a subsidiary of SAL Heavy Lift GmbH which is a German privately owned Ship Owner with 24 vessels, offering up to 2,000 mt lifting capacity, DP1&2 capabilities and an unrivaled speed of 20+ knots.
