FEBRUARY 22, 2016 — Espoo, Finland, headquartered Valmet is to supply exhaust gas scrubber system (EGCS) for two new cruise vessels, Mein Schiff 7 & 8, to be built by Finland's Meyer Turku shipyard for TUI Cruises GmbH.
The scrubber system deliveries to the first vessel will start in the fourth quarter of 2016 and to the second vessel in the first quarter of 2017.
Valmet says that the value of the order will not be disclosed but that "typically, the order value of scrubber system deliveries ranges between EUR 1 and 6 million."
The scrubber system delivery will include integrated hybrid scrubber systems for both engine rooms and all auxiliary systems with automation. The exhaust gas is washed with seawater in open loop mode and with recirculated water and alkali in closed loop mode. Wash water is cleaned with Valmet's patented water treatment system. All emissions are continuously monitored and the complete exhaust gas scrubber system is controlled with Valmet marine automation.
Mein Schiff 7 & 8 will be the fifth and sixth TUI Cruises vessels with EGCS scrubbers based on Valmet's technology.
"We are proud to continue the supply of our technology to the TUIC fleet. Our scrubber system will ensure for the ships a modern, reliable exhaust gas cleaning system," says Anssi Mäkelä, Senior Manager, Marine Scrubber Systems, Valmet.
