The Finnish scrubber manufacturer Langh Tech has closed its largest deal so far and will deliver SOx scrubber systems for 12 vessels owned by Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN A/S (www.ds-norden.com).
The Danish shipping company Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN A/S invests heavily in scrubber installations. Langh Tech Oy Ab will supply for retrofit four tankers and eight bulk carriers in the NORDEN- fleet with SOx scrubbers of open loop-type.
The tankers have two boilers and a total of six exhaust gas sources are connected to the scrubber. Automation enables the scrubber plant to be operated in two exhaust gas cleaning modes corresponding to 0.1 or 0.5 per cent sulphur in the fuel. This means compliance for the vessels with as well ECA and global regulations regarding SOx emissions.
The scrubbers will be of in-line type and replacing the silencers. Dry running of the scrubbers is possible, eliminating the need of bypass for the main engine. All auxiliaries will have bypass.
