Fuel additive gets RINA OK

ADVERTISEMENT

Cerion’s product GO2, the award-winning nanoparticle-based fuel additive, has been granted type approval from RINA. Fuel correctly dosed with GO2 remains in full compliance with the detailed fuel standards set forth by MTU and Caterpillar. Compliance with these standards is required in order to maintain a yacht’s engine warranty.


GO2 was also determined to be in full compliance with the more general ASTM fuel standards used by other engine manufacturers.


“We heard captains and chief engineers loud and clear when they told us that the approval of a leading classification society was an important part of their decision-making process for using GO2,” said Richard Franklin, managing director of GO2 Global Yachting in charge of worldwide sales and marketing. “For this reason, we asked RINA to work with the Southwest Research Institute in the U.S. to undertake an extensive test program covering 34 individual fuel test parameters established by MTU, Caterpillar and ASTM. Fuel treated with GO2 passed all 34 tests. We are confident that this will encourage many more yachts to start using GO2, joining the large fleet of GO2 users currently enjoying less soot, cleaner hulls and better fuel economy.”
