"Ships at berth in EU ports are required to use only fuels with a maximum 0.1% sulphur content (in place since January 2010)"

Maximum of 0.1% or 0.10% at berth?

Good point. It is maximum 0.10% sulphur under the latest amendment (Directive 2012/33/EU). As mentioned in the article, the EU regulation now describes all sulphur limits with two decimal places (e.g. 0.10%) instead of one decimal place (0.1%) as it did in Council Directive 1999/32/EC and the later amendment 2005/33/EC.
