AUGUST 28, 2015 — Grimaldi Group member Finnlines has contracted Wärtsilä to supply three of its vessels with exhaust cleaning scrubber systems. The equipment is scheduled for delivery in early 2016.
The system selected for the three vessels is Wärtsilä's hybrid in-line scrubber system which provides the flexibility to operate in both open and closed loop modes.
In 2014 Finnlines placed a similar contract to have six of its ships fitted with Wärtsilä' exhaust gas cleaning systems.
"Repeat orders are always very satisfying as they represent confirmation that the performance of the systems delivered earlier fully meets the owners' needs and expectations. Wärtsilä is the market leader in scrubber systems for marine applications. We have a very strong track record in enabling ship owners and operators to comply with all SOx emission regulations," says Juha Kytölä, Vice President, Environmental Solutions, Wärtsilä.
"We are very pleased to call on Wärtsilä again to provide us with the latest emissions abatement technology and know-how. This is an important step towards having our entire Baltic fleet scrubber equipped and in fully operational service," says Tapani Voionmaa, Group General Counsel, Finnlines Plc.
