Alfa Laval Wins 5-Ship EGCS Order

Alfa Laval has won an order to supply its PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) to 5 ships in the fleet of the Dutch ship owner Spliethoff. Delivery is scheduled for 2014.

The manufacturer's say that  they delivered their first PureSOX exhaust gas cleaning system to Spliethoff in 2012. Since then, the system has logged more than 7000 hours in compliance with IMO regulations for Emission Control Areas (ECAs).

“This repeat order for our scrubber technology confirms that it is an attractive and proven solution for the reduction of sulphur oxides, be it for retrofits or for installation aboard new vessels,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.

Alfa Laval explain that the IMO convention for the reduction of sulphur oxides (SOX) will affect all vessels, both new and existing. It demands that sulphur emission levels in certain Emission Control Areas (ECAs) shall be cut to 0.1 percent from the year 2015 and that the global emission level must not exceed 0.5 percent from the year 2020. To reach these levels ship owners can either use more expensive low-sulphur fuel or, on vessels where it is suitable, continue to run the ship on heavy fuel oil and invest in a scrubber such as their own PureSOX system.
