Fuel treatment for smaller workboats

Industry Database

Diesel fuel treatment additive manufacturer Aderco has responded to an increasing demand from customers in the fishing industry for smaller containers of fuel treatment with the introduction of a new one litre bottle, due to usage and storage restrictions on board.

The Pelagic trawler fleets have been using Aderco in 20 litre pails for diesel marine engine maintenance but there has been a call from compact fishing vessels and passenger boats to provide Aderco 2055G in smaller units. This is down to reduced use because of size and restrictions on storage in smaller vessels.

The introduction of the new one litre bottle came as a result of requests from ship operators and fishing fleets who were unable to store the larger 20 litre pails on their vessels. The one litre bottle will be offered to vessels that will use between 2,000 to 5,000 litres of fuel each year.
