OCTOBER 24, 2014 — Lysaker, Norway, headquartered Clean Marine AS says it has been selected by South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Mipo Dockyard to supply exhaust gas cleaning systems (scrubbers) for two new 40,000 dwt MR tankers owned and operated by a British oil major, to comply with this regulation without switching to more expensive fuels.
"These contracts confirm the growing market demand for Clean Marine's Allstream EGCS, which is a particularly competitive solution for the tanker segment" says Nils Høy-Petersen, CEO of Clean Marine. "We are very pleased to be working closely with Hyundai Mipo to deliver a cost-effective solution to help the owner comply with existing and pending emissions regulations."
The Clean Marine system's integrated fan and gas recirculation technology allows the one EGCS unit to simultaneously serve all combustion units, including the boilers.
The Clean Marine system supplied to Hyundai Mipo will be designed to clean 100,000 kg of exhaust per hour and will remove both sulfur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter from the emissions from one main engine, two auxiliary engines, and one boiler. The system is a hybrid type which can operate seamlessly in both Open Loop and in Closed Loop (zero discharge mode).
Installation is scheduled to take place during 2016.
