Finland-based technology group Wärtsilä received an EUR 170 million (USD 197.5 million) deal to provide hybrid exhaust gas cleaning equipment and retrofit services to a European container shipping company.
Wärtsilä Services will deliver 50 MW, 60 MW and 70 MW Wärtsilä hybrid scrubber systems which will be retrofitted to the company’s container vessels. These are solutions which have the flexibility to operate in both open and closed loop.
When operating in open loop mode, it uses seawater and in closed loop mode seawater with an additional reagent to remove SOx from the exhaust, helping to reduce emissions in coastal and sea areas. Wärtsilä will also provide engineering and site advisory services for the vessels.
The company said that utilising its new scrubber unit design, water cleaning system mode, and the engineering and advisory services would allow more operational efficiency and compliance with the new IMO Marpol regulation’s emission level.
“Our exhaust gas cleaning system will not only help our customers’ vessels run on lower emissions but significantly improves the air quality and emission level in coastal and sea areas in general,” Markus Ljungkvist, General Manager of Project Sales at Wärtsilä Services, said.
