Albion Marine exhibit at Mari-Tech 2018, Canada. Mari-Tech is the annual conference of the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering (CIMarE). Held annually since 1976, this premier, national event is the only one of its kind in Canada. It is a great opportunity to learn about the latest developments, touch and feel the most modern technologies, and network among highly talented peers.

Visit us at booth T18. Victoria, April 18-20th.

Fuel is the lifeblood of the shipping industry and is fundamental to almost every aspect of propulsion. So, when there is a change to the fuels picture, it has a knock-on effect for all other aspects of operation. From 1 January 2020, shipping will see huge changes in its use of fuel, as the Global Sulphur Cap comes into force, dictating the use of compliant fuel or abatement technologies.

With the deadline approaching fast, this issue is dominating discussion in the industry and this is why the Sulphur Cap 2020 Conference in Amsterdam will reflect this by taking the Global Sulphur Cap as its theme, examining all the key issues facing shipping through the lens of the Sulphur Cap.'

Issues addressed will include: 

  • What is the right fuel choice?
  • What role can enginebuilders play in aiding compliance and how are their designs and plans affected by the cap?
  • What are the technological problems posed by new fuels?
  • Will there be sufficient compliant fuel available?
  • Will fuel quality be maintained?
  • Are scrubbers an efficient and cost-effective solution?
  • How is lube choice affected by the cap?
  • Will we see large-scale adoption of LNG post-2020
  • How will shipowners' operations and bottom lines be affected?

Albion Marine is looking forward to boosting our already impressive portfolio of perfectly executed projects for the Government of Canada.

Albion Marine will attend regional Maritime Industry Workshops for consultation with Public Service and Procurement Canada's (PSPC).

Marine Services and Small Vessel Sector (MSSVS) has established the Marine Procurement Modernization Working Group, with members from Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) and Department of National Defence (DND).

The working group is engaging with the Marine Industry and interested stakeholders to better understand industry challenges and best practices to identify solutions that benefit both Industry and Government.

 Workshops will be held in Victoria, BC.

  • April 4, 2018 - Day 1: Sustainment workshop
  • April 5, 2018 - Day 2: Small Vessel Construction workshop




Very welcome news for the maritime industry. After two major BWMS test facilities announced they will no longer test BWMS fort USCG Type Approval certification, we are glad to see there are more options becoming available.

In Albion Marine's opinion, it will help to prevent a shortage of approved systems for the peak of BWMS retrofit market. The US Coast Guard approved Cal Maritime's Golden Bear Facility to work with DNV-GL as a sub-contracted laboratory for land-based and shipboard testing of Ballast Water Management Systems.


Albion Marine Solutions are contracted by Canada to carry out Marine Water Sampling survey at multiple locations along the Central Coast of British Columbia, Canada.

The survey has to be carried out twice every year.

The project is very challenging. The sampling stations are located in very remote locations and accessible only by float plane. Marine weather in British Columbia during this time of the year, the time sensitiveness of the samples and a number of other factors dictated the execution of the survey. However, that makes the project even more rewarding. Our team delivered the results to complete satisfaction of our clients.

Project final report has been well accepted by Canada and our team has been highly appreciated for their dedication and flawless execution of the process.




Complex and challenging projects are our forte. Our team members are used to delivering excellent results under difficult circumstances.
