ABC Maritime has been using XBEE onboard their ships since August 2012. It first started with the M/V San Beato. Primarily, they wanted to treat her Heavy Fuel Oil 380 after she encountered some issues with fuel quality.
As a result of the noticeable improvement after the first use, the company then decided to start using XBEE onboard their ships long-term. This time, they chose to use it for another one of their ships, the M/V AdFines Sea, in order to evaluate the capacity of the enzyme technology and clean up the whole fuel system.
In order to measure exactly how well it performed, they compared it to a standard marine fuel additive used in one of their sister ships, to see how it stacked up against XBEE.
