05 May 2015

Aegean Marine Petroleum has been a member of the Lubricants Working Group of the International Council on Combustion Engines (CIMAC) since 2012. This year, Aegean proudly hosted this meeting of April 15-16, 2015, at the company’s headquarters in Piraeus.
Technical experts and executives from the entire Marine Lubricants Industry (marine equipment manufacturers, suppliers of additives and oil companies)—31 delegates in total—attended the CI- MAC meeting that took place at the Aegean Headquarters in Piraeus.
All international marine lubricants technical stakeholders had the opportunity to discuss in detail the current and future parameters in Marine Lubrication, following the new regulations in regards to the low sulphur levels.
Among others, two very detailed and comprehensive technical presentations by Deputy General Manager of Aegean Bunkering Services Inc., Kostas Polydakis, regarding the concerns and trends on the low sulphur fuels, as well as by Technical Man- ager of Dynagas, Christos Vlachos, which focused on LNG as a bunker fuel, gave the participants a picture of the latest market need for actions towards the compliance with the new regulations.
All the distinguished guests also had the opportunity to visit the new waste oil treatment facility of Hellenic Environmental Center (HEC - Oil One) in Drapetsona. Kostas Floudopoulos, Plant Manager, gave the guests a detailed tour and informed them on the plant’s standard operating procedures.
Pavlos Ioannidis, Aegean Marine Lubricants Global Manager, repre- senting Aegean at the CIMAC Work-
ing Group, had the pleasure to lead and organize this Working Group meeting, along with the valuable help of other Aegean colleagues.
We feel that Aegean, with its hospitality and professionalism, has helped promoting the image of Greece abroad and we hope that more will companies follow this example in the future.
