The new fuel oil, Shell FuelOil Plus, is aimed at enabling manufacturers improve their boiler efficiency, lower their plant running and maintenance costs, according to Vivo Energy.

Hans Paulsen, the managing director of Vivo Energy Uganda, said: “We are cautious about what is emitted to the environment, thus the efforts to develop this aanced oil type that reduces fuel-related emissions such as black smoke, soot and carbon dioxide.”

He was speaking at the launch of the product at Serena hotel in Kampala last week.

He continued: “Fuel oil never burns completely and with time, industrial equipment can become less reliable as the build-up of deposits can lead to efficiency loss or costly maintenance. Vivo Energy is committed to ensuring that these deposits are properly managed and the environment is protected.”

Joseph Arapi, the Shell quality manager, said the new product improves fuel efficiency by up to three- per cent and lowers emissions and black smoke by up to 70 per cent.
