Abstract [en]

This study intends to investigate how a change of fuel type from Heavy Fuel Oil to a ultra-low sulphur hybrid oil affects the indoor air quality on board a passenger ferry. The indoor air quality was assessed with respect to the concentration of NO2, SO2 and TVOC, temperature and relative humidity. The efficiency of the ventilation system on the ferry was estimated by measurements of the levels of CO2. The air on-board the ferry was rather dry and in the engine space also warm. CO2 levels exceeded 1 000 ppm extremely seldom, thus indicating well designed and functioning ventilation. The concentrations of the air pollutants were below the guidelines values for good IAQ. They were also much below the occupational limit values. Living and working on-board this ship is comparable to any other indoor environment. The change of the fuel influenced only the concentrations of SO2.
