Wärtsilä’s Launches Inline Scrubber System
Wärtsilä said its new inline scrubber system is designed to offer benefits over conventional exhaust gas cleaning systems, and its compact form saves space. With just one scrubber system per engine, installation is designed to be faster and easier, Wärtsilä said, which consequently reduces the out-of-service time for the vessel. The inline scrubber system operates as a conventional Wärtsilä open loop scrubber system, but has three water inlets in the main body of the scrubber, as opposed to two in the conventional system.
