The main engine not to be operated below 25% MCR and every two days and within a period of one hour the power to be increased to 60% MCR. Thereafter vessel to steam with minimum 60% MCR for 30 minutes and the power to be decreased to low load again within the following 30 minutes. Slow steaming operation to be performed with due consideration to safe navigation. Additional consumption of IFO for auxiliaries/boiler while sailing with a load less than 50 pct MCR and due to increase up to 60 pct ME load every two days. Operation, the Master/Owner has the right to increase M/E power above the cut-in point of the aux. blower to avoid any damages to vessels engines. Vessel is not fitted for cold ironing operations.
